The “Eleven” Series
#3-“Bob & Bob”-Oil on Canvas, 8” x 10” Craig L Haupt
Of the eleven paintings in this series, there are two that are reworks of earlier Pen & Ink drawings. This is one. On the original Bob & Bob drawing there was a design element on the figure to the right whose clarity as an eye, was not as strong as it could have been. This oil painting series afforded me a chance to alter that design ‘flaw’ with a different medium.
Even with the change I was able to keep the general flavor afforded the Pen & Ink/Watercolor/Color pencil drawing, yet have an oil painting that was independent of the original.
I will be participating in an upcoming Group Exhibit at Y:Art Gallery to show these 11 paintings.
A little ways off, I will still include the Exhibition dates and related information with each Monday Art posting and will Share their FB Event posting as it becomes available.

Too bad I’m in Wisconsin! I’d come in a heartbeat!
Thanks Claudia for your support!
Using white on your main “figure” really shows off your new shading technique. Great, fun painting as always!
Thanks Sherry, I used to have trouble with ‘white’, earlier attempts, I felt, gave me a chalky effect. Starting to get a feel for it now.
