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-“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.

 

 

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”x 12” 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-“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-“Sorry”-The Doodle

13 Sorry-Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s by Craig L Haupt #4

Title-“Sorry”  First sequenced post.

 

Posted is ‘The Doodle’, from Sketch Book One, December 2006. This selection is from the +12 portion of the project-Doodles selected by friends. This one was selected by Karen. She selected the ‘doodle’ number One for the three spheres and the shapes surrounding the top area of the spheres. Yet Karen also liked the long downward ‘leg’ shapes in the circled ‘Doodle’ number Two. I decided to incorporate both into the final painting.

How I resolved combining the two is on next Monday’s ‘Worksheet’ post.

 

A NOTE: The 12 people I selected for the +12 portion of this project were for several reasons, two are my sons, some, very close friends I have known for years, some, artists I have connected with over the years. Other variables such as time and place played a part with people I knew. There were only 12 selections I could make and there were many people I would like to have included in this project and my hope is that you don’t feel slighted in any way.

 

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.

books by 12 different individuals (friends and or fellow artists).
