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

17 The Candy Store Doddle

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

Title-“Candy Store”  First sequenced post.


Posted is ‘The Doodle’, from Sketch Book Two, March 2008. The grouping of shapes, Circle number 1, was the main interest for developing a painting. As you can see by the date of conception, it has taken this 12 + 12 project to spur me to work something out. The shape to the right, in Circle number 1, representing a wallet, began the initial narrative but would change as the painting developed. The shape in circle number 2 reminded me of a lamppost with little light rays shining down and would serve to further the narrative. The only problem was, as much as I liked the lamppost shape, it was too close to the other shapes, so I changed to a more traditional lamppost as you will see in the Worksheet Post next week.  .


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.
