12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Back to Back”, The Doodle

37-back-to-back-doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #10 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Back to Back”  First sequenced Post.

 

Ah, the start of a New Year and with it the start of the next Painting in the 12 + 12 Art Project. When looking at the two figures sitting back to back in this circled ‘Doodle’ from 2012, I face certain questions. As the creative part begins for the worksheet and subsequent transfer to canvas, I have the artistic freedom to change the ‘Doodle’ to whatever I want to.  Yet there is an internal switch that wants to maintain as much of the integrity (a word often used in these First sequenced Posts) of the ’Doodle’ as possible. In this case, my area of contention is the separation of space between the two figures marked by the Red Arrow. If I choose to include it, then the question becomes, what alteration is made to the space to create an object that they are leaning against, a fence?, wall?, hedge?, etc.

Then, of course, there is the question of a narrative.

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.

For all the different “Friends/Followers” both here in America and around the world, to my FaceBook, Blog, Linkedin, Google+ Art Posts it is difficult to quite know which holiday season, if any, that you adhere to.
For my part and tradition I would like to say Merry Christmas, have a wonderful Holiday season, and a very Happy New Year.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-Memorial Day Intermission Post

56

Project: Intermission Post for Memorial Holiday Observance.

Title-“Brizard” by Craig L Haupt

While I have no artwork related to this Holiday Observance, I post a very simple color pencil and watercolor image.

 

These weekly Posts are also seen by followers from outside the borders of the United States and while today is our national holiday here in the United States for those fallen in past and present wars, I wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those, both here and around the world, who have given their lives in the struggle against oppression and tyranny.

 

I will continue the 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s Art Project Monday, June 6.

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.

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

DSC_0027

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

Title-“The Wedding”  First sequenced post.

 

Posted is ‘The Doodle’-from 25 years ago on loose sheets of paper. The images to be used for “The Wedding” painting are circled in Red. Circled with the ‘number 1’ is the first ‘doodle’ and then weeks later I reworked the ‘doodle’ (number 2 and 3) on another sheet of paper.

I have, over the past 25 years, tried several worksheets on several occasions to find a satisfactory final design, always close but never what I really wanted. For this project, I went back to these initial ‘doodles’ and the trial & error sketches/worksheets for another attempt.

 

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.
