12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Dessert” Finished

12 Dessert

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s by Craig L Haupt #3

Title-“Dessert”  Fourth sequenced post.

Posted is the “Dessert” Finished painting.

When reviewing/critiquing my paintings with a few friends/artists, I incur a certain degree of lighthearted ribbing when I mull over minor elements for their logical implications. In this case-the ‘screw/bolts’ in the bracket for the head and shoulder/hand/jaw joints – do I make them all with cross marks in the circles (as drawn on the worksheet) for the pivot action or solid color. After weeks and weeks of mental anguish, I opted for the solid, since a ‘cross marking’ would read as a tightened ‘Phillips head’ screw whereas the solid would denote a bolt/dowel to suggest the potential for movement. My, my, my, the decisions artists are faced with!

 

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.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Dessert” Progress Painting

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s by Craig L Haupt #3

Title-“Dessert”  Third sequenced post.

Posted is the “Dessert” painting in progress. For the ‘madam’ and ’waiter’ figures as well as the wood ‘wainscot’ I have laid in the undercoats of paint. Beyond that, my emphasis has been on the ’wallpaper’ build-up of colors. My intent is to keep the ‘wallpaper’ colors soft or muted so that a sense of depth is achieved by the contrast of the brighter colors on the ‘figures’ and ‘still to be painted desserts’.

I guess once the finished painting is posted next Monday, it will be up to the viewer to decide if I succeeded.

 

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.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Dessert” Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s by Craig L Haupt #3

Title-“Dessert”  Second sequenced post.

 

Posted is the 12” x 12” pencil Worksheet to be used for the ‘Dessert’ painting.

Once I had figured out a functional bracket for the heads to pivot, the other parts making up the neck, arms, and hands started to fall into place. After generating a solid idea on the ‘worksheet’ for a painting, I am able to benefit from sharing the drawing with a few friends and fellow artists, and in turn ponder suggestions of a few technical design details.

Now on to the transfer to canvas, color choices and additional modifications.

 

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.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Dessert”, the ‘doodle’

9 Dessert Sketch

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s by Craig L Haupt #3

Title-“Dessert”  First sequenced post.

 

Posted is ‘The Doodle’, from December 2012. This circled ‘Doodle’ is the end result from the three similar ones to the right. As interested as I was in developing a painting from this ‘doodle’, recurring glances over the years always produced a stumbling block as to how I wanted to make the heads work/pivot on the extension coming up from the neck. Including this ‘doodle’ as part of this project forced me to resolve this issue.

The solution, of course, is on next weeks worksheet post.

 

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.
