12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #23 of 24, ‘A Bridge in Time’, The Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #23 of 24

Title-’A Bridge in Time’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

 

After a slight intermission for Postings of the 1448 Gallery exhibit, the Monday’s posting will now return to the 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s project. After over two years of Monday postings, these are the final two paintings in the project.

From the + 12 portion of this project, the ‘Doodles’ for this painting were selected by Jesse, one of my two sons. My other son, Eric, had chosen ‘doodles’ for painting #12.

Jesse’s first choice was the doodle circled as #1. Not satisfied with this doodle as the main subject, I selected, from another of his choices circled as #2, the one to the left circled as #3 to play the main subject/design role.

Next Monday the ‘Worksheet’

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #22 of 24, ‘Day in the Park’, The Doodle

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #22 of 24

Title-’Day in the Park’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

 

From the + 12 portion of this project, the ‘Doodles’ for this painting were selected from my sketchbooks by a fellow Artist and good friend, Carole.

This painting, #22, shares a theme with #20, #21, and upcoming #23. In each, I had selected a ‘Doodle’ from ones they had choose. In each I had developed a Worksheet and in three of the four I had started a painting. As my paint application evolved with the previous 19 paintings in this project and two intermissions that I veered away to create eleven, 8 x 10 paintings and seven, 11 x 14 paintings respectably, I ran into a roadblock in finishing these four 12 x 12’s.

I asked each of these individuals to select new ’Doodles’ from the sketchbooks.

Circled Doodle #1 was Carole’s original choice. Number 2 was one of her new choices, as was #3 and #5. I choose to work with #2 but kept open the option of incorporating #5 and #4, pending how the Worksheet developed.

Next Monday the ‘Worksheet’

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.
