12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Taking Flight” Worksheet


Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s – #7 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Taking Flight”  Second sequenced post.


Posted is the 12” x 12” pencil Worksheet to be used for the ‘Taking Flight” painting.

Referring back to the selected “Doodles” (10-03-16 post) the process became how to meld the three of them together, to both create balance and make any adjustments to the shapes if a narrative began to unfold. The narrative, if any, can be a delicate process in itself depending on the abstractness of the image. I develop my own interpretation as the worksheet and painting continues to grow but I don’t want to muddy the reactions and interpretations of the viewer by some detailed explanation. It’s a treat to hear some of the thoughts others attach to a painting.

Next is the choice of colors and shading to create the layered perspectives


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.
