12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Pondering’, The Finished Painting #18

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #18

Title-’Pondering’

Third sequenced post, ‘The Finished Painting’.

As I mentioned in the ‘Worksheet’ post, there was a change made to the leaf that prompted the ‘Pondering’ title. In the painting, I switched the leaf from curling/pointing away (depicted in the worksheet) to having it point inward, which is the proper direction of the ‘fingers’ if resting the chin on a hand. I know, picky, picky, but really, a sense of logic must prevail. Lol.

Next Monday, the start of the next Painting in the ‘12 + 12 Project’.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Pondering’, The Worksheet #18

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #17

Title-’Pondering’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

As far as I know, I have never thought of a title first and then tried to draw an image to it. Creating the title somehow floats in between the worksheet and the painting phase. For this image, the title was determined by one small leaf.

With the three ‘creatures’ looking at the three ‘flowers’, I opted for trying to determine if there was a distinct emotional narrative between one of the ’flowers’ and its counter part ‘creature’ that could prompt a title. I choose the closest ’flower’ and rested its chin on one of the leaves. Hence ‘Pondering’.

Even though the painting will follow the layout of this worksheet fairly strictly, there is one small change to the painting, and that is to that one particular leaf.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Pondering’, The Doodle #18

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #18

Title-’Pondering’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

 

From the + 12 portion of this project, this ‘Doodle’, from 2012, was selected by good friend and fellow artist, Mattye. Mattye selected the ‘Doodle’ circled in red, #1. My first attempts at creating a design for the doodle proved problematic. I made several reasonable attempts and finally decided on one for a worksheet. I even started the painting but indecision persisted and I set it aside. A few months ago, I was working in my current sketchbook and doodled a design that intuitively directed me to add a modified version of Mattye’s selection, shown in Circle #2. This new take on her ‘doodle’ selection seemed to work where all other past attempts left me unsatisfied.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Bing Cherry’, The Finished Painting

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #17

Title-’Bing Cherry’

Third sequenced post, ‘Finished Painting’.

With still feeling relativity new to Oil Paints and learning their various proprieties (opaque’s, translucence’s, Glazing, etc.) and how I effectively paint with them, I was recently made aware of a grouping of oil colors listed as Radiant’s. For the last few paintings they have been used sparingly to gain a feel for them. I’m getting to like them. In this painting they are used predominantly in the three ’swirling’ designs on the left.

Next Monday the start of #18 in the 12 + 12 project.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Bing Cherry’, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #17

Title-’Bing Cherry’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

 

When selecting the ‘Doodle’ for this painting and the one for the previous painting #16, they were not selected for any initial similarities. It was only when developing the worksheets that some similar design connections became evident. As noted in the Posts for painting #16, a landscape scene worked its way into both worksheets. There are two other incidents of connection. The downward viewing position of the ‘face’ is one and second, the tapering shape of ‘upper arm/shoulder’ and those corresponding shapes directly to the left.

The ‘Doodle’ shown above for Painting #17 was selected and the ‘Worksheet’ completed during a two day stretch this past September, along with the previous #16 Design. As mentioned, in those previous posts, there are some design connections which are best described with next Mondays ‘Worksheet’ post.
