Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s by Craig L Haupt #4

Title-“Sorry”  Third sequenced post.

Posted is the “Sorry” painting in progress. The difficulty I am facing with this painting is the receding panels/borders. Shown is my third attempt to get a color I am satisfied with and for a third time, I am not satisfied. After this painting was photographed for this ‘Progress’ Post, I applied a fourth built-up and finally found colors for all three panels that I could accept. There will still be additional glazing layers to finalize the panels and the rest of the painting for next weeks “Finished Painting” Post.


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.

  1. Hi Claudia, My initial goal was to make the three receding walls/panels look stone like. But to be honest, I don’t have a formal painting background and creating the colors and application for a classical stone effect has proved elusive. I’m oping for just layering and then glazing to just achieve a pleasing set of colors that recede by color variation. It’s one of those things that you keep wanting to push boundaries to keep learning but also understanding your limitations.
