Tiktok is a great way to give your mind a break. But it’s also a great way to find some pretty cool artists. And that’s exactly how Canadian artist Laura Kelly went viral after almost ruining one of her paintings. ‘Almost’ being very key.

Laura had just finished up an amazing portrait of her grandfather and went in to add the final varnish. However, she forgot to dilute the varnish and it ended up completely changing the color of the painting. Luckily she was able to save it by going over the most affected areas.
