Two Boot Camp Demo Paintings

This week in my Design Boot Camp, I did a demo for the students on how to use the Elements and Principles of Art while creating.  The morning class asked me to create something based on the word, "winter" and the evening class asked me to create something based on the word, "circus."  Here are the paintings I created for them:

These pieces are large-ish.  They're each 19x24:

Can you tell which is which?  Does it matter?

This is the one that started with the prompt, "Winter":

As I mentioned to my students, I don't really like to create a piece from start-to-finish in one sitting (I think time is an important part of the process), but when I consciously use the Elements and Principles of Art, it makes the single sitting process possible.

What about you?  Do you create art from start-to-finish in a single sitting?  Or do you work in bits over time?  I'd love to know!
