12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Stick Man” Progress Painting

23 Stick Man Progress

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s – #6 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Stick Man”  Third sequenced post.


Posted is the “Stick Man” painting in progress.

As I started to figure out the colors of the figures, the transition of colors from one figure to the next became an important determining factor. It was the color decision for the bottom center figure that set the colors in motion.

As I get ready for additional paint layering to the figures and adding the cast of objects (shown on the previous worksheet post), there are still a few nagging questions. These question entail how certain objects affect the overall balance to the composition. How one object might have a weak correlation to another nearby object and an area in the bottom right corner (the grassy knoll), minus any object on the worksheet, still feels empty.

I’m pondering solutions, of which the resolutions will be shown next Monday in the finished painting.


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.
