When it comes to great artists of the world, drawing a realistic depiction of water is surely the highest of achievements. This video showcases an artist going by the alias ‘PortraitPainter Pabst’ (no relation to the beer brand) who sets out to mess with your perceptions.

Showing what appears to be a glass of water at the start, he reveals that it’s actually a drawing. Yet as the work gets underway (and accompanied by a beautifully upbeat melody), it becomes clear something truly special is unfolding here. He clearly enjoys messing with our minds, and is capable of very real-looking results.
