12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Tidying Up’, The Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #16

Title-’Tidying Up’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

The next two paintings in this project have a shared history. Both ‘Doodles’ (for paintings #16 and #17) I chose and then finalized both worksheets all within a two day span. Their connections also expand into some of the elements of their final design.

More on their other connections with next Mondays ‘Worksheet’ Post.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Cross Talk’, The Finished Painting

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #15 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Cross Talk’

Third sequenced post, the ‘Finished Painting’.

One of the positive aspects of engaging in a project such as this, is experimenting with choices of colors. In particular, the colors used in the ’box’ areas. These soft pastel colors are an extension from a painting in the 8 x 10 ’Eleven Series’ I completed a few months ago. Pending on the subject matter, I expect this ’box’ and/or color choice will periodically find it’s way into other future paintings.

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

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Cross Talk’, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #15 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Cross Talk’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

If you were to see this worksheet close up, you would see numerous eraser marks from a first attempt at this ’to be finished painting design’. Whereas the subjects from the ’Doodle’ were fine, the numerous embellishments added didn’t seem to work. So I erased 90% of the pencil work around the main subjects and started over. I’m much happier with this final worksheet version.

Next Monday, the ’Finished Painting’.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Cross Talk’, The Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #15 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Cross Talk’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

From the + 12 portion of this project, this ‘Doodle’ was selected by good friend and fellow artist Steve. Steve selected the circled in red, doodle no. 1. While pondering the possibilities, I noticed another doodle to the right. I Choose two parts, circled no. 2 and 3, that peaked my interest for consideration into the final design.

Next Monday, the ’Worksheet’.

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’.

For those new to the project, a synopsis of this 24 painting project is in the first 12 + 12 posting on March 7, 2016 Post ‘Boots’, the ‘Doodle’.

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’.
