painting from paintings

I'm convinced that painting from paintings is good. The hardest part at the moment is that I seem to have to finish a pretty realistic painting on a panel before I can really get at the abstraction that I want. I'd like to figure out how to have that process involve two paintings at least. The plein air versions of the paintings, and then the abstractions. Separate rather than on top of each other!
