Sometimes I start artworks get halfway through and then abandon them for months on end. In fact, that is what tends to happen most of the time. To stop myself doing this I occasionally set myself painting-a-day challenges where I have to start and finish a painting in a single day and I get the awesome folks on our facebook page to come up with the daily themes.
I have also tried to go the added step of filming the process, in part of full, so that you can see how it is done. To days topic is Flamingos!
