Paintings often go through a number of iterations before an artist feels they're ready for display in a gallery. Here are 3 paintings by David Hinchliffe which have been through various iterations, some of them taking more than a year until the artist was finally satisfied. Each panel represents the one painting. The first (a Poinciana tree in Merthyr Park, New Farm) has had two iterations. The second ('Abbott Street Spring") has had 3 versions over a period of almost 2 years, starting with a monochromatic streaked blue version and ending with the pared back green version. The last painting of diners at the French cafe, Les Deux Magots, has undergone 4 different phases, ending in the final version where two waiters were added.
