Let’s try to understand the artist’s mind, which is quite different a normal mind –

Visual Perceptual Observation

Visual Perceptual Observation: Vision received the ~15 types of sensory input, which is collected in the brain and influenced by existing knowledge database i.e. concept, expectations and attention. Mind of a visual artist has a special ability to perceive objects differently using acute visual awareness, which includes dimensions of space, colour, shade and textures etc., unseen by normal people.

Meta-perception

Thereafter artistic mind manipulates the above “Visual Perceptual Observation” with an aesthetic sense, and generates a modified qualitative artistic response, which satisfy most of Principles of Design.

Creative Transformation

Then the artistic mind, using “Element of Art”, improvises and refines the above “Meta-Perception”, which results in a unique creation with personalized style. This improvisation process evolves the artwork from abstract to detailed using Artistic process methodology.
