12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Back to Back”, The Worksheet


Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #10 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Back to Back” Second sequenced post.
Posted is the 12” x 12” pencil Worksheet to be used for the ‘Back to Back” painting.
Referring back to the first sequenced ‘Doodle’ post of this “Back to Back” painting, an area of contention was the ‘space’ in the Doodle between the two figures. I opted to make the ‘space’ a tree. This posed another question, are they resting against the tree?, as they would have if I used a hedge or wall. I decided, from my own slightly twisted sense of logic to have them sitting ‘back to back’. This puts them behind the tree. The items I placed in the painting, i.e. the small table and the watering-can behind the tree roots, I hope, helps to imply that sense of depth.

Not sure how it will work in the completion of the painting.

In painting, a weak spot is my lack of ability to paint ’leaves’ on trees. To compensate, I have had to create my own tree foliage. A solution for this tree is shown in this worksheet.

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. We all have certain things we can’t do…so we dance around it. I can’t write a story from a third person view. I dunno. Weird. But I compensate by writing lots of first person narratives! Am looking forward to your next step.

  2. Good choice for the tree foliage.
    The two figures look so relaxed sharing the shelter of the tree. Looking forward to your color choices!

  3. Sorry for the lateness of this reply Sherry. Thanks for the comment, it won’t show on the progress painting post but I think I ended up with some good choices for the colors in the tree. When I post the final painting, I will be interested in your feedback.
