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 Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #17

Title-’Bing Cherry’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

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.

“12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Tidying Up’, The Worksheet”

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #16

Title-’Tidying Up’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

As I mentioned in the last Post (the doodle), this painting, #16, and the next painting, #17, have connections besides both being worked on at the same time. Towards the center, left side is an open space that connects to the ‘creature’. In this space I toyed with the inclusion of a landscape scene. On the next design, for #17, I found that there was an area that might warrant a similar embellishment.

Next Monday, the ‘Finished Painting’.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Tidying Up’, The Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #16

Title-’Tidying Up’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

The next two paintings in this project have a shared history. Both ‘Doodles’ (for paintings #16 and #17) I chose and then finalized both worksheets all within a two day span. Their connections also expand into some of the elements of their final design.

More on their other connections with next Mondays ‘Worksheet’ Post.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Cross Talk’, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #15 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Cross Talk’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

If you were to see this worksheet close up, you would see numerous eraser marks from a first attempt at this ’to be finished painting design’. Whereas the subjects from the ’Doodle’ were fine, the numerous embellishments added didn’t seem to work. So I erased 90% of the pencil work around the main subjects and started over. I’m much happier with this final worksheet version.

Next Monday, the ’Finished Painting’.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Cross Talk’, The Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #15 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Cross Talk’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

From the + 12 portion of this project, this ‘Doodle’ was selected by good friend and fellow artist Steve. Steve selected the circled in red, doodle no. 1. While pondering the possibilities, I noticed another doodle to the right. I Choose two parts, circled no. 2 and 3, that peaked my interest for consideration into the final design.

Next Monday, the ’Worksheet’.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Close Encounters’, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #14 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Close Encounter’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

From the selection of the ‘Doodle’ to creating a final design, is determined by how much or how little a narrative is employed. In this case I saw more of a narrative emerge from the different types of shapes, particularly the four, layered cakelike, receding shapes. Revisiting the ‘Doodle’ posting will give viewers a reference of the transition.

Next Monday, the ’Finished Painting’.

For those new to the project, a synopsis of this 24 painting project is in the first 12 + 12 posting on March 7, 2016 Post ‘Boots’, the ‘Doodle’.
