Extra large...

My program is more or less satisfactory, so now I have to find myself a good subject for a mosaic. Regardless of the subject, the mosaic had to fulfil following conditions:

  • I wanted to make a really big mosaic, at least one square meter (more than 10 square feet) because my collection colourbars had grown significantly.
  • It had to be a very colourful mosaic. Unfortunately I had large amounts of black colourbars, so I also wanted the mosaic to contain as much black as possible.
  • Besides I didn't want to buy lots of extra material for my mosaic. At this point I still wasn't sure I would go through with it (there is a big difference in making plans and actually execute them).

Adi Steurbaut (my father) has released an artbook in 2001 with a nice overview of his painting carreer. If I choose a painting from this book, I could spare myself the trouble of scanning a picture (no chance of loss of contrast, brightness,...). With the permission of the author I recieved the sourcefile from the printing-office.

General info:

  • Size of the original painting: 60x60 cm (24x24 inches)
  • Size of the mosaic: 120x120 cm - 288x288 pixels (48x48 inches) (to preserve as many details as possible)
  • Designed: May 2002
  • Finished: November 2002
