f A softer approach... - Art Eye Candy

A softer approach...

So I've been asked to create some designs for something 
(top secret at the moment but I'll tell you soon)
and they asked for a softer approach, something not too niche.

I love to get briefs, and this one has allowed me to have a visit back to my softer side with watercolor and more muted colors.
At the moment I'm just messing around trying out a few ideas, I need four new designs by Thursday so I'm having lots of fun playing as I'm sure you can imagine, and hopefully this play will lead to some solid designs.

Take a peek...

Im working in a journal thats made up from brown paper, it makes a nice change to my usual one.

You know I gotta add in some collage somewhere.

and a little inky pen work.

Et voila.

Nice start, but she needs sweeter eyes I think.

I think the thing that I love the best about being a mixed media artist is that you can Play in ANY medium that I want and I'm not restricted to just paint of pastels.
It's a lot of fun and I'm enjoying this softer approach.
