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-“Please, Fetch!!”, The Doodle

29-please-fetch-doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #8 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Please Fetch!!”  First sequenced post.

 

Posted is ‘The Doodle’, from April 2013. As with several other ‘Doodles’ selected for this project, they are ones I have repeatedly glanced at over the years to see if I could develop them into a finished work of art.

Circle #1 is the ‘doodle’ that began the thought process for this painting. To this day, I am still perplexed as to what I was trying to do with the ’tail’ of the dog. Besides the ‘tail’ I was as least interested in the shapes enough that I extended this ‘doodle’ in Circle #2.

Circle #2- As much as I wanted to develop this on a worksheet I was put on hold by my uncertainty of placement of certain pedestals as well as a ‘narrative’.

Adding “Please Fetch!!” to this project spurred me to create a solution, to be shown on next Monday’s ‘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-“Taking Flight”, The Doodle

25-taking-flight-doddle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #7 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Taking Flight”  First sequenced post.

 

Posted is ‘The Doodle’, from Sketch Book Four, 2009. This selection is from the +12 portion of the project-Doodles selected by friends. This one was selected by Lee. As individuals were chosen to look through the Sketch Books for this project, I asked that they select one to four ‘Doodles’ and in turn I would chose which one or ones I would use. Lee selected four and the one circled with a number One was the one I chose to work with. The more I glanced at Lee’s other chosen ‘Doodles’, it seemed like two others, number Two and number Three, had similar elements/shapes that whispered in soft tones “Please consider me, please consider me”. So I did.

Next Monday’s ‘Worksheet’ post shows the resolution.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Stick Man” Worksheet

22 Stick Man Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s – #6 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Stick Man”  Second sequenced post.

 

Posted is the 12” x 12” pencil Worksheet to be used for the ‘Stick Man” painting.

I decided to expand on the two figures in the chosen ‘doodle’ and with it came the thought process of the narrative. Unlike “The Candy Store” and others, which have a strong central narrative, there is a menagerie of small semi-related narratives sprinkled around to the various characters.

The second ’doodle’ I incorporated as a mask, hanging from the hand of one of the figures in the lower left area.

Lastly, the hand-held ’toy’ in the upper left corner is the “Stick Man”. Contemplating this figures hand, begging to hold something, a ’doodle’ which I can’t seem to locate in any of my sketchbooks came into my head. I don’t know if it’s a real, I-can’t-find-it ‘doodle’ from the sketchbooks, or imagined, but he insisted on being included, enough that I named the painting after him.

There still a few questions about a few of the objects in the design but they, I hope, will be resolved during the painting process.

 

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-“Stickman”-The Doodle

21 Stick Man Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #6 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Stick Man”  First sequenced post.

 

Posted is ‘The Doodle’, from Sketch Book Six, February 2013. This selection is from the +12 portion of the project-Doodles selected by friends/artists. This one was selected by Pat. She chose the circled ‘doodle’ number One-showing two figures. In contemplating what design would develop from these ‘two guys’ the most important question was: Do I use just these two figures or can I add additional figures to them. While looking at these characters, I happened to notice the ‘doodle’ in circle number Two. I had always had an interest in this face but felt it was best suited for a “Thumbnail Sketch” drawing. So another question was, could I somehow work the ‘face’ into this design. .

How I resolved combining the two is on next Monday’s ‘Worksheet’ post as well as why this painting is named “Stickman”.

 

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 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.
