Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #11 by Craig L Haupt
Title-“Duplex” Fourth sequenced Post.
Posted is the 12” x 12” “Duplex” Finished painting.
When putting forth a finished painting for all to see, I am at a disadvantage from the viewers perspective. Since my time spent with each painting is either the painting aspect in and of itself or numerous hours of musing various facets of shapes and colors, I can’t see my paintings with fresh eyes.
This leads me to the ending paragraph written in last weeks post, “The difficult part in this painting is how these ‘applied’ decisions create a sense of logic as various converging lines distort where forms (cities, skies, ground, etc.) are seen as behind a particular shape in one instance then moves to be projected in front of the same shape moments later”.
Not sure whether this bending of ‘logic’ will be seen by viewers as successful or not, but from my experimenting with ambiguous receding and overlapping angled planes that emanated from the ‘doodle’, I am, from my perch, satisfied with this attempt.
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.
