My first attempt at water soluble oil. I was too afraid to lay on thick paint (because it would take weeks to dry and to fix if I made a mistake...) so I worked with thin, translucent layers of paint. I wouldn't say it was the best method of approach but it was a good experience.
The underpainting of the second piece was done in acrylic. (most of the dark purples) While painting with oil, I left some of the underpainting to show through.

Instead of solving this conceptually, I thought it was more suitable for the magazine (geared towards younger audience) to create something eye-catching and whimsical.
