When I went down to the studio today and took a close look at a painting that I'd worked on last week, I realized that it had too many flaws in the execution to be marketable.

Rather than re-paint over the top of the old version, I started afresh. Using the existing work as a study enabled me to work quickly with a minimum of fussing over the details.
