12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #24 of 24, ‘Post Expiration Date Blues’, The Finished Painting

♪Now all them’s colors have been finalized

The background and them figures with little eyes

Embellishments such as tv’s, bowls and such

Some’s important, some’s don’t matter much ♪

 

♪There’s a lesson contained in this painting

My words I sing, not to keep you waiting

Check that stamped date before you buy

The odor emitted might just make you cry♪

 

♫Chorus

Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Checking the month, day, and year should be duly noted

Oh Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Aptly suggest that the can might be bloated ♫

 

The final painting of the 12 + 12 Project

Next Monday: The start of the ‘The Journey to Ukazoo Book’ Project.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s- #24 of 24, ‘Post Expiration Date Blues’, The Worksheet

♪ Oh this worksheet I manage to construct,

Arranging shapes with thought and luck

Connecting everything to a can of soup

As awful odors knock you for a loop ♪

 

♪ Even after the paintings first stokes are started

Questions of placement and a few items departed

With an eraser several selections require a tweak

Those final results I will show you next week ♪

 

♫ Chorus

Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Checking the month, day, and year should be duly noted

Oh Them’s Post Expiration Date Blues

Aptly suggest that the can might be bloated ♫

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-“Duplex”, The Worksheet

46-duplex-worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #11 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Duplex”  Second sequenced Post.

 

Posted is the 12” x 12” pencil Worksheet to be used for the ‘Duplex” painting.
Referring back to last weeks first sequenced ‘Doodle’ post of this “Duplex” painting, I mentioned the omission of the ‘rocky column’ shape in the ‘semi-worksheet’. I felt this was an important feature in the ‘Doodle’ so I have retained it.

The five ‘spheres’ I also decided to retain but not in the original position shown in the ’Doodle’.

For certain art genre, particularly landscape paintings, attention is given to establishing a ’foreground’, middle-ground, and ’background’. In this painting, while I have those three planes/grounds shown as the triangle trees/rocky column in the foreground, the two cities as the middle-ground and the sun/sky as the background, it is the intersecting of various shapes that project an ambiguous overlapping of those three planes.

Next week, the painting in progress.

 

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” Finished

16 Sorry

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

Title-“Sorry”  Fourth sequenced post.

Posted is the “Sorry” finished painting. Besides wrestling with color choices, artists are always addressing the ’balance’ of a work.  There are books, books, and more books that explain formula balance but sometimes artists, pending on their ’style’ must respond to their own internal sense of balance in an artwork.  Up to the last minute the window in the upper left corner was always a rectangle. While all the receding panels/borders were square/rectangle I decided to add an arch to the window. This arch adds another ’sphere’ shape that softens all the right angles in that corner and complements the ’spheres’ of the subjects. Not an earth shattering decision but I yield to those, sometimes pesky, artistic internal voices.

 

I will not post any artwork Monday, July 4th due to our national holiday observance.

 

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.
