12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Different Perspectives”, The Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #13 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Different Perspectives’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

So here we go again, the second half of this project. This selection is from the +12 portion of the project-Doodles selected by friends. This one was selected by two individuals rather than one person. Beth and Dale. Working with their choices, I found four that, rather than as a main subject, appeared to support a doodle I had long considered for a finished painting but could never find the proper environment to surround it with. Circles numbered 1,2, & 3 were picked by Dale (1 & 2 have similarities). Number 4 was selected by Beth. Number 5 is the doodle from 2006 that I had long considered.

Next Monday, the ’Worksheet’.

The only change I have made to the second half postings is that I will forgo the ‘painting in progress’ postings. The posting sequence will be the ‘Doodle’, ‘Worksheet’, and ‘Finished Painting’ and then repeat.

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

The ‘Eleven’ Series #7

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.

 

I will be participating in an upcoming Group Exhibit at Y:Art Gallery to show these 11 paintings.

Included are the Exhibition dates and related information and will Share Y:ART’s 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.

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.

“12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“The Patio”, The Worksheet

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

Title-“The Patio”  Second sequenced post.

 

Posted is ‘The Worksheet’ for “The Patio” painting.

Needless to say, from the excessive amount of eraser marks shown on this worksheet, that a great many alterations took place. Using a technique I employed in an earlier painting called “Room With a View” I am utilizing a combined overhead view and face-on view. Of the first layers of shapes (seen overhead), while depicting a picnic table, (to be brick) patio, daffodils, and fish pond, they are still used to suggest a face as mentioned in last weeks post.

In the next receding layers, the two figures shaded with green, are the transition shapes. Seen face-on, they are two figures, seen as an overhead view they’re depicting grass surrounding the patio. There is also a transition from the overhead view of the picnic table to the face-on view of the tree/bush branches that represents the hair.

The Butterflies, one used as a bowtie, can operate from both an overhead and face-on view.

Pardon me if this seems rather complicated, I really did just want a very simple painting.

Now it’s on to choosing colors for the painting.

 

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-“The Patio”, The Doodle

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

Title-“The Patio”  First sequenced post.

Posted is ‘The Doodle’, from Sketch Book One, 2005/2006. This selection is from the +12 portion of the project-Doodles selected by family/friends. This one was selected by Eric. Eric is one of my two sons, affectionately known as my favorite oldest son (and Jesse is my favorite youngest son). My request to guests of this project was to select three or more ‘doodles’ allowing me options in selecting a ‘doodle and or ‘doodles’ to work from. As true to Eric’s personally, he selected three caricature ’Doodles’ that seemed more suited to my ’Thumbnail Sketches’ project then to the current 12 + 12 project. He is the only one, of the 12 people selected for this project, that I returned the sketchbook and asked for a few additional selections. He selected this ‘doodle’. While not as far removed from his first selections, it was a choice that had greater potential to develop into a painting.

Pertaining to the ’doodle’ circled in ‘red’, the challenge was how to decipher what appeared to be a face in the forward grouping of shapes, with the two figures (noted by their eyes) protruding to each side in the next receding layer of shapes. Then of course there is another layer of shapes behind those.

Next weeks Worksheet posting will offer a solution.

 

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-“Duplex”, The Worksheet

46-duplex-worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #11 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Duplex”  Second sequenced Post.

 

Posted is the 12” x 12” pencil Worksheet to be used for the ‘Duplex” painting.
Referring back to last weeks first sequenced ‘Doodle’ post of this “Duplex” painting, I mentioned the omission of the ‘rocky column’ shape in the ‘semi-worksheet’. I felt this was an important feature in the ‘Doodle’ so I have retained it.

The five ‘spheres’ I also decided to retain but not in the original position shown in the ’Doodle’.

For certain art genre, particularly landscape paintings, attention is given to establishing a ’foreground’, middle-ground, and ’background’. In this painting, while I have those three planes/grounds shown as the triangle trees/rocky column in the foreground, the two cities as the middle-ground and the sun/sky as the background, it is the intersecting of various shapes that project an ambiguous overlapping of those three planes.

Next week, the painting in progress.

 

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-“Duplex”, The Doodle

45-duplex-doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #11 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Duplex”  First sequenced Post.

 

As I looked through my Sketchbook for another idea to include in this 12 + 12 project, I came across this November 2014 ‘Doodle’ shown in the circled area #1. It seems that I had enough interest in this ’Doodle’ that unbeknownst to me (senior moment???), I had done a quick 1/4 inch scale worksheet on the opposite page shown in Circle #2.

Ok, since I had something semi-started, it seemed appropriate to include it in this project.

As I start to transfer this semi-worksheet to the larger full scale 12 x 12 inch worksheet I noticed two elements missing from the original ’Doodle’. First was the shape shown by the Arrow #3, a sort of rocky column and at Arrow Number 4, is a group of five spheres which were replaced in Circle #2 by another ‘City’ type shape, hence the Title “Duplex”.

The question becomes do I keep either one or both the ‘column’ and ‘spheres’ and how should I include them in the final painting.

As always, next weeks ‘Worksheet’ will show decisions and solutions.

 

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.
