12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Duplex”, The Doodle


Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #11 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Duplex”  First sequenced Post.


As I looked through my Sketchbook for another idea to include in this 12 + 12 project, I came across this November 2014 ‘Doodle’ shown in the circled area #1. It seems that I had enough interest in this ’Doodle’ that unbeknownst to me (senior moment???), I had done a quick 1/4 inch scale worksheet on the opposite page shown in Circle #2.

Ok, since I had something semi-started, it seemed appropriate to include it in this project.

As I start to transfer this semi-worksheet to the larger full scale 12 x 12 inch worksheet I noticed two elements missing from the original ’Doodle’. First was the shape shown by the Arrow #3, a sort of rocky column and at Arrow Number 4, is a group of five spheres which were replaced in Circle #2 by another ‘City’ type shape, hence the Title “Duplex”.

The question becomes do I keep either one or both the ‘column’ and ‘spheres’ and how should I include them in the final painting.

As always, next weeks ‘Worksheet’ will show decisions and solutions.


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.
