In classical art, abstraction is the structural foundation of the work.  You might not notice it, but if you were to make a pattern of just the three average tones - light, middle and dark, you would see a more abstract version of the work.

Poster Studies are similar except that instead of just doing them in three general tones, I flatten the subject and paint the color and correct tones.  I find them very evocative.
