Yes. But it will require some attention to the scaling of your matrix.

This shows how it might be done:

> mat <- matrix( runif(100), nc=10)
> image( mat + rep( 1:2, each=50),col=c(topo.colors(10),heat.colors(10)))

Add an offset to the matrix to choose a different color scheme.

Of course, the step size for the offset needs to be greater than or equal 
to the range of values that you are representing.

You will need to specify zlim to be sure this works right.
