Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s by Craig L Haupt #3

Title-“Dessert”  Third sequenced post.

Posted is the “Dessert” painting in progress. For the ‘madam’ and ’waiter’ figures as well as the wood ‘wainscot’ I have laid in the undercoats of paint. Beyond that, my emphasis has been on the ’wallpaper’ build-up of colors. My intent is to keep the ‘wallpaper’ colors soft or muted so that a sense of depth is achieved by the contrast of the brighter colors on the ‘figures’ and ‘still to be painted desserts’.

I guess once the finished painting is posted next Monday, it will be up to the viewer to decide if I succeeded.


The project will be posted in the following sequence, 1st Monday-the sketch/doodle or related source from whence the 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.
