Cover Layout Color Samples

It's time to chose the background layout color ! I've got fourteen options to start. Planning to get a general idea form these main options and then maybe tweak the color even more once the client sends me in a particular direction. I put the cover from the first book in the series at the bottom as a reference.

I love this series, and the color variations are really subtle and cool! I want to read this book.

Thanks Diana! These covers are being done in watercolor which I'm still having some struggles with. I also like the subtle colors but there are times where I just want to take a big bold splotch of opaque color and paint a face or something and not worry about how light or dark it will dry or about disturbing the colors underneath.
