Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s -“Back to Back”, Finished Painting


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

Title-“Back to Back” Fourth sequenced post.

Posted is the 12” x 12” ‘Back to Back” Finished painting.


Referring to last weeks Post about possible additions and changes, a diffused tree-line background was added and the sky color changed.

The other area of concern was trying to enhance the notion that these two individuals are sitting back to back rather than against the tree by adding stronger shadows along with the placement of various objects. This will be one of those things where the viewer has to make up their own mind as to how the figures are seen in relationship to the tree.


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.
