12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Pondering’, The Finished Painting #18

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #18

Title-’Pondering’

Third sequenced post, ‘The Finished Painting’.

As I mentioned in the ‘Worksheet’ post, there was a change made to the leaf that prompted the ‘Pondering’ title. In the painting, I switched the leaf from curling/pointing away (depicted in the worksheet) to having it point inward, which is the proper direction of the ‘fingers’ if resting the chin on a hand. I know, picky, picky, but really, a sense of logic must prevail. Lol.

Next Monday, the start of the next Painting in the ‘12 + 12 Project’.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Pondering’, The Worksheet #18

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #17

Title-’Pondering’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

As far as I know, I have never thought of a title first and then tried to draw an image to it. Creating the title somehow floats in between the worksheet and the painting phase. For this image, the title was determined by one small leaf.

With the three ‘creatures’ looking at the three ‘flowers’, I opted for trying to determine if there was a distinct emotional narrative between one of the ’flowers’ and its counter part ‘creature’ that could prompt a title. I choose the closest ’flower’ and rested its chin on one of the leaves. Hence ‘Pondering’.

Even though the painting will follow the layout of this worksheet fairly strictly, there is one small change to the painting, and that is to that one particular leaf.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Bing Cherry’, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #17

Title-’Bing Cherry’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

 

When selecting the ‘Doodle’ for this painting and the one for the previous painting #16, they were not selected for any initial similarities. It was only when developing the worksheets that some similar design connections became evident. As noted in the Posts for painting #16, a landscape scene worked its way into both worksheets. There are two other incidents of connection. The downward viewing position of the ‘face’ is one and second, the tapering shape of ‘upper arm/shoulder’ and those corresponding shapes directly to the left.

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-‘Tidying Up’, The Worksheet”

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #16

Title-’Tidying Up’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

As I mentioned in the last Post (the doodle), this painting, #16, and the next painting, #17, have connections besides both being worked on at the same time. Towards the center, left side is an open space that connects to the ‘creature’. In this space I toyed with the inclusion of a landscape scene. On the next design, for #17, I found that there was an area that might warrant a similar embellishment.

Next Monday, the ‘Finished Painting’.

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #16

Title-’Tidying Up’

First sequenced post, ‘The Doodle’.

The next two paintings in this project have a shared history. Both ‘Doodles’ (for paintings #16 and #17) I chose and then finalized both worksheets all within a two day span. Their connections also expand into some of the elements of their final design.

More on their other connections with next Mondays ‘Worksheet’ Post.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s-‘Cross Talk’, The Worksheet

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #15 by Craig L Haupt

Title-’Cross Talk’

Second sequenced post, ‘The Worksheet’.

If you were to see this worksheet close up, you would see numerous eraser marks from a first attempt at this ’to be finished painting design’. Whereas the subjects from the ’Doodle’ were fine, the numerous embellishments added didn’t seem to work. So I erased 90% of the pencil work around the main subjects and started over. I’m much happier with this final worksheet version.

Next Monday, the ’Finished Painting’.
