    if you need it full size, use transparent/translucent paper.

    I suppose you mean that it could be looked at from the back side? A lightbox helps with that, with virtually any paper thinner than board.

    Or just use a big mirror.

    Have a mirror on the wall behind your easel. Turn around and look at your work in the mirror and there you go.

    Good to have if you want to do self portraits as well.

    A small pocket mirror will suffice: Stand in front of the work, hold the mirror edge to your nose (mirror facing the work), ta-daa, instant flip

    Flip the canvase physically maybe?
