A portrait study.
After a long time of exclusivly painting from imagination i decided to get back into studies. I used to not be happy with my studies at all because I never had the feeling that I learned much. After many discussions with my buddies and a lot of thinking about the process of learning, I hopefully will be able to get more out of those studies now.
This time I tried to focus mostly on form, volume and edges.
I exegerated a lot of things, pushing values, form and colour and tilted the head a little to not get into the mindlessly-copying-what-you-see-mode.
