A room with plenty of pillows and blankets might make for a physically soft space, but there is also an emotional dimension which art can tap into. A lot of modern art can be harsh and dramatic, but there is still plenty of art that is on the softer side.

Soft Mood Art

The world outside can be a harsh place, but inside you can help yourself to create a living space that’s soft and comforting if you purchase the right piece of art. A room with plenty of pillows and blankets might make for a physically soft space, but there is also an emotional dimension which art can tap into. A lot of modern art can be harsh and dramatic, but there is still plenty of art that is on the softer side. Let's look at what makes art soft so you can find art that will help you create the soft space you need.


Keep Things Light

To create a soft feeling, painters often use lighter colours. Dark colours tend to create a harsher and more melancholy feel, and light colours against dark colours create a dramatic contrast. When the whole image is made of tinted colours, it creates a soft and sunny feeling that is especially warm and inviting. Please note that light is not the same thing as bright.
Colours like pure red and yellow create an energetic feel that can push the work out of the realm of soft and into some other area. But if the red and yellow have been mixed with some white it lightens up and creates a more calming feel.


Avoid Hard Edges

Even a flat painting can have soft curves if the painter moves their brush correctly. Try and avoid pieces that have hard lines, right angles, and jagged edges. Look for circles, ovals, and other curvy shapes that will help to create a mood of safety and softness. To take things to the next level, you can go beyond sharp distinctions for art where shapes are more indistinct, fading into being rather than popping out.

Consider Watercolour

Soft paintings can be created using any paint, but the one medium that best suits the mood is watercolour. The use of water creates a translucent appearance that is both natural and soft. It’s very difficult to paint a perfectly straight line with watercolour because of the way that water naturally spreads across paper and canvas.
