“12 + 12, 12 x 12’s”-“Boots”, the progress

3 Boots Progress

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

Title-“Boots”, Third sequenced post

Posted is the 12” x 12” progress of the “Boots” painting.


The next step after the Worksheet, is creating the painting. At this stage, besides the transfer of the subject from the worksheet to canvas, further adjustments/tweaks are made as paints are applied.

Please see/scroll back to the first project post (3-7-16) to see a synopsis of the 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s project and the initial ‘doodle’.


The project will be posted in the following sequence:

1st Monday-the sketch/doodle or related source from whence the current painting has originated.

The second Monday-the 12”x12” pencil worksheet showing the intended painting.

The third Monday-a progress post of the painting.

The fourth Monday-the finished painting.

Then repeat.

  1. I do like your progression, although, just for me, I like the lighter drawing than the filled in one. But either would look great on a gallery wall!

  2. Claudia, lol, a reply that could become an essay. I agree with you. If you scroll back to the various “Line and Dots” posts you will see examples of pen & ink/watercolor works that came from the Sketchbook ‘doodles’. Ninety five percent of the Pen & Ink/watercolor pieces I have done over the years would never work as an Oil painting. Since I started with the oils somewhere around 2011 the majority of the subjects I chose to do in oil would not have worked as Pen & Ink/watercolor pieces. In between the two, there have been several I feel could work in either medium and there are a couple I have done as both Oil and Pen & Ink/watercolor. This particular one, “Boots” is one I could have done in Pen & Ink/watercolor and been completely satisfied with.
