Lego brick painting “Two by four”
This Lego brick painting is made on prepaid phone card. My first thought was to name it: “Tiny things that fathers step on when their children doesn’t put them where they belong”. But, since this is not a competition for the longest name of the smallest painting, I choose the most obvious title ever: “Two by four”.
“Two by four”, Lego brick painting, acrylic on prepaid phone card (5,5 cm x 8,5cm)
After my drawings of animals with ball point pen, I wanted to see if I can make a pencil drawing.
My first choice was “Staring contest”, because it seemed that is most complex when it comes to shadows.
This is small size (17cmX19cm) pencil drawing on “Koh-i-noor” sketchbook.

Then, of course, I was wondering if I can paint them. I had 2 small size gesso boards
(gift from my dear friend Alpin). It was first time for me to paint on gesso board.
The surface was very smooth, but this time I wanted some structure under. I primed them
with 2 layers of gesso and I didn’t use the send paper at all. Sometimes I like those lines on the
surface from the brush when applying gesso, they add movement to the paintings.
Well, here they are, Mrs. Piggy and Mr. Bull 🙂
