Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #9 by Craig L Haupt
Title-“HEY!! Hands off the Marble” Fourth sequenced post.
Posted is the HEY!! Hands….” Finished painting.
In the finished painting, I must admit, not all the fingers or palms/back of hands have patterns even though that was the initial intent. On the upper left hand, Ring finger, the green shapes merge into similar shapes to become fields of crops which then becomes an overhead scene of a farm.
The other area of no patterns is the overhead view of vehicles on a road, top right hand.
As mentioned last week, the background color on the ‘school visual’ was the white of the paper and this worked because of the hand and patterns being outlined with black marker. For the painting I opted for a darker rich color to push the hands forward as well as adding shadows to heighten the form of the hands.
The marble was no particular type of marble, just a generic blend of colors in a Sphere to offset the negative space in the center.
I will not Post for the next two weeks due to the celebrations of various Holidays’. Will return for the Posting of Painting Number 10 in January 2017. Be Good!! Be Safe!!
