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’

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

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #20

Title-’A Leap of Faith’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

 

From the + 12 portion of this project, these ‘Doodles’ were selected by a fellow artist and good friend, Susan.

A selection of twists and turns. I chose Doodle #1 and realized that I needed an additional selection to make it fit the 12 x 12 inch format. I choose Doodle #2 and rotated it 90 degrees so the side labeled ‘b1’ was positioned to the bottom of the page along with a few alterations. After many attempts to make it work, I dropped Doodle #1, rotated #2 another 90 degrees, so ‘b2’ was now (with additional alteration) towards the bottom of the page. I then added Doodle #3 to the right side of it.

Head spinning yet??

The results to be seen in the Worksheet.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Contemplating Flight’, The Finished Painting #19

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #19

Title-’Contemplating Flight’

Third sequenced post, ‘The Finished Painting’.

 

As mentioned in the ‘Worksheet’ text last Monday, there was a fair amount of work to creating the layout. The painting posed similar issues, particularly the expanding shapes to the right side. The first attempt was not pleasing and was repainted, the posted worksheet reflected that second design attempt. Still not satisfied, several sections (closer to the upper and lower box) were repainted twice more till I found a configuration/placement I could live with. This painting also became a transitional piece in this project that effected the next four 12 + 12 paintings. More on that next Monday.

 

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

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Contemplating Flight’, The Worksheet #19

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #19

Title-’Contemplating Flight’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

 

Besides the first attempt to work a complete painting with just the Birds on the leaves, I made several succeeding attempts combining the two selected ’Doodles’ from Deborah. I opted for developing this ’Worksheet’ layout. A very different layout configuration than I have done before, but I had to take in consideration that this was part of the creative equation of this project anyhow.  We’ll see how this works as a painting.

For those new viewers to this 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s project, a short synopsis. 24 paintings total, all 12” x 12”s. Twelve of the 24 paintings are developed from ’Doodles’ selected by yours truly from my sketchbooks. The +12 portion of the project, is that I handed out my sketchbooks to 12 friends/artists I choose and they in turn selected a few ’Doodles’ that I had to develop a finished painting from.

So, here we go, posting the last six paintings in the 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s Project.

From the + 12 portion of this project, these ‘Doodles’ were selected by a good friend, Deborah. Doodle No. 1 posed a particular problem in trying to develop it as a main subject in a 12 x 12 inch painting. It wasn’t working. I then decided to include ’doodle no. 2’ (another selection by Deborah) into the equation, also rotating it 90 degrees to use it vertically rather than horizontally. The ‘birds’ now became more of a supporting role to the overall design as to be seen in the Worksheet.

Project: The 11 x 14’s #5

Title-’A Smaller Marble’

Project: The 11 x 14’s #5

Continuing a small break from the Monday 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s Project and posting six 11 x 14 inch paintings recently completed, this is the fifth of the six.

Due to next Monday’s Memorial Day celebration, I will return to the Monday Postings in June.
