Monsters and dreamers and gorillas, oh my!  Have a look at the art
of Jennifer Davis.  She's known for being fond of putting animals
into human situations, starting her paintings with the eyes since they
are the "soul" and anchor of a painting, and completing much of a
piece before suddenly painting over all she'd done.  "I enjoy the
repetitive labor," she says, "finding the bravery to paint over it and
uncover something fresh." (LazyCobra)

In that way, painting may have a common thread with writing...
Repetition, starting over, multiple drafts, discoveries...
