I often add to demo paintings when I get home. As they are generally not worthy of exhibiting due to limited time spent on them teaching, I use them play and experiment, sometimes different techniques or maybe a new colour.

I found it hard to put my brushes down on this one, kept adding bits each day until it told me it was enough. Mostly they don't work out and often are overworked, but this I liked and thankfully stopped before that stage.
