Digital Print Based on Egg Tempera Painting

Inspiration: A contemporary painter named Odd Nerdrum painted a brick. He paints very well, I think. And while it might not make sense to most people to paint a brick in the first place, it is useful to understand it as a testament to skill in very spartan terms. He made the brick look solid and heavy, and he handled the light very well. I wanted to try to do the same thing, and then to see if I could also make the heavy brick appear to float.
