Apples and Oranges - an original oil painting by Matthew Bates

Apples and Oranges

Oil on Canvas - 50cm x 40cm - ©2012, Matthew Bates, All Rights Reserved

This is a 3D painting that you don't need 3D glasses to see. The effect is created by focusing on the orange slices for a few seconds and then you will realize that the apples are not out of focus, they are simply in the background. You cannot get this effect by using traditional photography because the camera only has one lens, instead of the two "lenses" that we use to see.

To reproduce this effect hold your hand out and focus on it, everything in the background will go double, just like the apples in the painting.
