Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #12 by Craig L Haupt
Title-“The Patio” Second sequenced post.
Posted is ‘The Worksheet’ for “The Patio” painting.
Needless to say, from the excessive amount of eraser marks shown on this worksheet, that a great many alterations took place. Using a technique I employed in an earlier painting called “Room With a View” I am utilizing a combined overhead view and face-on view. Of the first layers of shapes (seen overhead), while depicting a picnic table, (to be brick) patio, daffodils, and fish pond, they are still used to suggest a face as mentioned in last weeks post.
In the next receding layers, the two figures shaded with green, are the transition shapes. Seen face-on, they are two figures, seen as an overhead view they’re depicting grass surrounding the patio. There is also a transition from the overhead view of the picnic table to the face-on view of the tree/bush branches that represents the hair.
The Butterflies, one used as a bowtie, can operate from both an overhead and face-on view.
Pardon me if this seems rather complicated, I really did just want a very simple painting.
Now it’s on to choosing colors for the painting.
The project will be posted in the following sequence, 1st Monday-the sketch/doodle or related source from whence the painting has originated.
