The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

as it paints the entire area, visually there is no difference, but if the x,y co-ords or the sizing were changeable - the super call would definitely be required.
unless it paints on top of, on top of, on top of etc??
perhaps it would be safer, and more consistent to include the super call.
