10 Amazing Paintings and Drawings that Almost Look Real

Have you ever looked at a painting or drawing and thought it could be real? This realistic art technique that many artists use is called, Trompe-l’oeil, which means to deceive the eye. The phrase originated from the Baroque period, during revolutionary scientific discoveries and highly skilled and religious displays.
