12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“The Candy Store” Finished Painting

20 The Candy Store

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s by Craig L Haupt #5

Title-“The Candy Store”  Fourth sequenced post.

Posted is “The Candy Store” finished painting. After several layers of paint and glazing additional colors to different areas I was able to sign my name to a finished painting.

The question throughout this painting was the object on the sidewalk that the ‘red’ character, on the right, would be concentrating on. Back on the worksheet there was a ’cat’ poking his/her head out from behind the large character to the left. I decided to use the ’cat’ as the object of interest. I didn’t want it to look like a cartoon cat but I am not a realistic painter to say the least. After looking at lots and lots of images of cats, I held my breath and dove in to paint it as a one shot deal. In the context of the painting, I’m satisfied, hope it looks all right to you, the viewer.

Next week the start of Painting #6


The project will be posted in the following sequence, 1st Monday-the sketch/doodle or related source from whence the painting has originated.

The second Monday-the 12”x12” pencil worksheet showing the intended painting.

The third Monday-a progress post of the painting.

The fourth Monday-the finished painting.

Then repeat.
