How to Create an optical illusion Painting

 


What's an optical illusion painting? If you're new to the world of painting, don't worry - I'll explain it soon. For now, just know that this article is NOT about how to paint like the masters - this article is about what's NOT in it! If you already have an understanding of how this kind of painting is done, or even have some ideas on how it can be done better, drop me a line below for your ears to the sound of my voice! (I'd love to hear what you think!)

optical illusions are very well-known in the world of art. There are many types of optical illusions: optical illusions of depth and perspective, optical illusions of movement, optical illusions of color, etc. The art world is constantly being challenged by the ability of artists to produce optical illusions that fool the viewer into thinking there are things not in the scene at all. Many people believe that the best way to create an optical illusion is to stand still in a pose with your back straight, while your head hangs downwards, like a votive candle. Now look at yourself in the same position, but with your eyes focused only on a spot far away - where is the horizon line?

This is actually an optical illusion, created by lenses and mirrors that redirect light. We don't perceive ourselves as being at a fixed distance from anything, because our eyes are moving! If we place a hand on the ground and point it at something in the distance, we will see it - the point of contact between the two objects distorts our perception of their position. And if we place a hand at a definite angle to a wall and look at it from that point in the distance, we will see the shadowed outline of the wall behind us. All these tricks are optical illusions.

Now this leads to a lot of interest in art, as people try to demonstrate these optical illusions. Art galleries are constantly looking for new ways to display these illusions. But some of these displays are very simple, such as putting a flower or a piece of cake on one side of a wall, while a mirror is on the other side. Others use optical illusions to show a man walking across a floor without any stairs. And some very inventive painters make use of smoke to create optical illusions.

The most famous optical illusion is the painting called Monet's Water Lilies. It was created in 1869 and was one of Monet's most successful paintings. In this painting, Monet shows a flower which is actually a bunch of water drops, arranged in such a way that you can easily mistake it for a real bunch of flowers. When you look closely at these water drops, they look real, but when you stand far away from them, they look like smoke.

Another example of a Monet painting which exhibits this optical illusion is the ceiling of the Diderot hotel in France. The painting consists of a circle of the ceiling, while the background, which is made of white marble, looks as if it's made of glass. As you look downwards, you can see that there's a staircase beneath you, while beneath the stairs, you can see the outline of the original ceiling. You can clearly notice the difference between the original ceiling and the one which are being reflected. Monet knew very well how to create this optical illusion, as this is exactly what his paintings are all about.

However, it wasn't until recently that a major optical illusion was created by a movie, The Artist. In this movie, George Clooney plays a sculptor who creates optical illusions in order to capture the viewer's attention. In the scene where the two girls walk hand in hand along the pavement, the one on the right is walking under an overpass, while the girl on the left is walking up the stairs. The camera pans down from the girls as they pass each other, and when they turn their heads, the one on the right is standing on the other side of the street, as if he's supposed to be walking up that road. When they both look back, the overpass disappears. This optical illusion was captured using a computer.

The world we live in today is full of artificial sights. The internet, television and movies are also filled with optical illusions. If you have an open mind, you'll be able to appreciate the beauty of art and optical illusion even more. They're a valuable tool that you can use to break through the clouds of daydreams and into the realm of reality. It takes a lot of talent and training, but you don't need any special training to create optical illusions of your own.
