shapes vs. objects

Same image, different color palette...This one is called "the Blues".  It's amazing how much information you can put down with just a few simple "shapes".  It's better to think of the eye, nose, mouth etc..as shapes and not objects to be painted.  Sometimes a nose is defined by the shadow shape that is right next to it, or the lip is defined by the dark swath of value under it...
