A LEGO mosaic replicating Roy Lichtenstein's painting Clouds and Sea.
About this creation
The companion piece to Roy Lichtenstein's Sunrise. This mosaic has the same dimensions - 3, 48x48 gray baseplates and 9, 16x24 green baseplates. It measures approximately 45x22 inches and includes about 4,000 LEGO pieces. This is the start of mosaic, laying out the plates and frame.
All the plates in order, along with the frame. Starting to fill in the mosaic.
The completed mosaic on the table. To emphasize the shading patterns, I used approximately 1,000 1x1 round black plates and 400-500 1x1 round red plates, layered over the top. Also, I used white tiles for the top band to give it a more interesting look.
The final completed mosaic, hung in the hallway. Roy's name hangs down from the bottom. I will also include the name of the painting "Clouds and Sea" on the right, once I acquire enough plates... ran out once again.
