12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Close Encounter’, The Finished Painting

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #14 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Close Encounter’

Third sequenced post, the ‘Finished Painting’.

Pending the paintings narrative, time of day can play a part in how colors are chosen. In this case ‘dusk’. With that in mind I worked to keep the colors subdued to try match this time of day as best I could.

An item on the worksheet, the flower in the flower pot, somehow didn’t make it into the painting. There is a chance I might consider going back to the painting and putting one in, but at the same time I’m not too bothered with the lack of one. I could always reason that a flower is what is being sought.

Next Monday, the start of the next Painting in the ‘12 + 12 Project’.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Close Encounters’, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #14 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Close Encounter’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

From the selection of the ‘Doodle’ to creating a final design, is determined by how much or how little a narrative is employed. In this case I saw more of a narrative emerge from the different types of shapes, particularly the four, layered cakelike, receding shapes. Revisiting the ‘Doodle’ posting will give viewers a reference of the transition.

Next Monday, the ’Finished Painting’.

Title-’Close Encounter’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

For the start of the new year, this 12 + 12 entry is a Doodle selected by yours truly. This is another Doodle, from September 2016, that had caught me eye on several occasions but couldn’t figure out how to develop it until a few months ago.

Next Monday, the ’Worksheet’.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Different Perspectives”, The Finished Painting

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #13 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Different Perspectives’

Third sequenced post, the ‘Finished Painting’.

Feeding off directions initiated by the ‘Eleven Series’ project and using sparse simple doodles chosen by Beth and Dale over some of their more complex choices allowed me to alter my line, balance and color choices. This painting becomes an important stepping stone for the remaining eleven paintings in this project.

Due to the approaching Holiday season and the days they fall on, I will return to the 12 + 12 postings on Monday, January 8th.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Different Perspectives”, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #13 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Different Perspectives’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

Like a puzzle, the worksheet shows how I have arranged and tweaked the ‘Doodles’ selected for this painting. Also begins the task of figuring out colors to be used. There are initial choices and others will be worked out as the painting takes form.

Next Monday, the ’Finished Painting’.

The only change I have made to the second half postings is that I will forgo the ‘painting in progress’ postings. The posting sequence will be the ‘Doodle’, ‘Worksheet’, and ‘Finished Painting’ and then repeat.

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #13 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Different Perspectives’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

So here we go again, the second half of this project. This selection is from the +12 portion of the project-Doodles selected by friends. This one was selected by two individuals rather than one person. Beth and Dale. Working with their choices, I found four that, rather than as a main subject, appeared to support a doodle I had long considered for a finished painting but could never find the proper environment to surround it with. Circles numbered 1,2, & 3 were picked by Dale (1 & 2 have similarities). Number 4 was selected by Beth. Number 5 is the doodle from 2006 that I had long considered.

Next Monday, the ’Worksheet’.

The only change I have made to the second half postings is that I will forgo the ‘painting in progress’ postings. The posting sequence will be the ‘Doodle’, ‘Worksheet’, and ‘Finished Painting’ and then repeat.
