Head study

Hello dear friends and visitors from the web somewhere... The aim of my study was to approach the painting task by laying down shapes instead of sketching in with line. This has to do with a seemingly subtle change in perception and approach, but it is interesting in that one can develop this part of our perception and cognitive processes whilst creating art. I found the exercise to be very helpful and I learnt new procedural skills through it. This is essentially the way I approach my painting. A major breakthrough in the study session was what I call "jumping". "Jumping" is visually thinking about what you want to achieve and then processing it through your cognitive processes to achieve it the most direct way possible, requiring the least amount of edits necessary. It requires on the spot multilevel focus to achieve and as all skills can be developed. Try it, but just remember I coined it first. :)

Below the video you will find the finished study. Could have polished it to a photo real finish, but what's the point since all necessary information was achieved to convey the subject.
