make art that sells

i am doing the Lilla Rogers course 'make art that sells' we have just started part b. Our first assignment is paper goods and we had to design a christmas card!
i am having terrible difficulties with 'style'...
i have different styles and never know which one to go with....those who know me know i have my traditional watercolour style then i have my free expression style. i am confused! i am going to try and mix the two up to produce something more user friendly yet still free and a bit edgy!
these are the confusing muddle of design i did for this week!





see.... what a confusing muddle!

Hey Mitsi. I do think you have a style, but not sure if any of these cards are it! its good to try new things tho.

Those are cool. I am glad you say you have different styles when painting different things. I do also and thought there was something wrong with me at first but found it depends on the subject or the material I am painting on that dictates some style. Picasso had a few different styles himself so little me isn`t going to worry about it much. Happy Holiday

I like the go nuts-card. I think it's cool. I think you should stick to your style. It is unique and I love it. The other stuff that is out there looks all the same to me. And boring!!! I think it is important what your basic feelings and opinions about these traditions are, like x-mas or easter etc.. There are many people who hate x-mas, for example, or feel sad at x-mas. I mean you cannot expect from yourself to make a happy, decorative card, harmonic etc. when you actually do not care about tradition or have bad feelings about these things and there should be room for that, too.
