12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #22 of 24, ‘Day in the Park’, The Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #22 of 24

Title-’Day in the Park’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

 

From the + 12 portion of this project, the ‘Doodles’ for this painting were selected from my sketchbooks by a fellow Artist and good friend, Carole.

This painting, #22, shares a theme with #20, #21, and upcoming #23. In each, I had selected a ‘Doodle’ from ones they had choose. In each I had developed a Worksheet and in three of the four I had started a painting. As my paint application evolved with the previous 19 paintings in this project and two intermissions that I veered away to create eleven, 8 x 10 paintings and seven, 11 x 14 paintings respectably, I ran into a roadblock in finishing these four 12 x 12’s.

I asked each of these individuals to select new ’Doodles’ from the sketchbooks.

Circled Doodle #1 was Carole’s original choice. Number 2 was one of her new choices, as was #3 and #5. I choose to work with #2 but kept open the option of incorporating #5 and #4, pending how the Worksheet developed.

Next Monday the ‘Worksheet’

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘The Connection’, The Doodle #21

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #21 of 24

Title-’The Connection’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

 

From the + 12 portion of this project, the ‘Doodles’ for this painting were selected from my sketchbooks by a fellow Art craftsman and good friend, Mac.

Of the three Mac selected, I chose Doodle #1. Two concerns cropped up, one was the receding of multiple layers. Somehow I needed to rework the seven layers to get it to about 3 or 4 receding shapes but still maintain the integrity of the selected ‘Doodle’. Two, also, as in the previous #20 Doodle posting, I realized that I needed an additional selection to make it fit the 12 x 12 inch format. Neither of Mac’s other two choices seemed to work. With that I perused through the Sketchbooks and found Doodle #2.

The results to be seen in the Worksheet.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘A Leap of Faith’, The Worksheet #20

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #20

Title-’A Leap of Faith’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

 

Lots of erasing, deleting and replacing a ‘doodle’, and more erasing, and even a little more erasing, to finally get an image on the worksheet I would be satisfied with. Now for transferring the line work onto the Gesso prepped board and making color choices.

Next Monday the ‘Finished Painting’

The ‘Eleven’ Series

#7- ‘Oh My!!!’-Oil on Canvas, 8” x 10” Craig L Haupt

This painting is from a September, 2012 ‘Doodle’ that I had looked at numerous times over the years, yet could not find a way to bring it to a finished solution. This current project of small paintings gave me the opportunity to find that ‘Doodle’ a home.

The ‘Eleven’ Series #5

The ‘Eleven’ Series

#5- ‘The Little House’-Oil on Canvas, 8” x 10” Craig L Haupt

As with the previous post of ‘Red Sphere’ this painting is less about narrative and more about color. In particular, the transition of color, starting with the light blue at the ‘house’ and spiraling its way inward to the ‘faces’.

 

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.

The “Eleven” Series-#4

The “Eleven” Series

#4-“Red Sphere”-Oil on Canvas, 8” x 10” Craig L Haupt

From a very simple ‘doodle’ in my sketchbook I choose to maintain that simplicity in the line work and rely more on color to strengthen the final image.

A touch more abstract then I am used to doing and also void of any narrative.
