12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“The Candy Store” Finished Painting

20 The Candy Store

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s by Craig L Haupt #5

Title-“The Candy Store”  Fourth sequenced post.

Posted is “The Candy Store” finished painting. After several layers of paint and glazing additional colors to different areas I was able to sign my name to a finished painting.

The question throughout this painting was the object on the sidewalk that the ‘red’ character, on the right, would be concentrating on. Back on the worksheet there was a ’cat’ poking his/her head out from behind the large character to the left. I decided to use the ’cat’ as the object of interest. I didn’t want it to look like a cartoon cat but I am not a realistic painter to say the least. After looking at lots and lots of images of cats, I held my breath and dove in to paint it as a one shot deal. In the context of the painting, I’m satisfied, hope it looks all right to you, the viewer.

Next week the start of Painting #6


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. As I’ve said before, your paintings always make me smile. The cat is perfect and the droopy licorice immediately caught my eye. Another great, fun painting !
