The Art of Stereoscopy: Michael Taylor
We're very fortunate to welcome amazing British artist and portrait painter Michael Taylor RP to the Stereoscopy Blog. I've been astounded by his artworks in whichever medium he chooses, and was stunned to learn how he uses stereoscopy both as an aid to his art and as an art form in itself. I asked Michael if he would write an article and I'm really honoured to share it with you now.
