Proposals loose vs. tight

I tend to create tight proposals, exact drawings and maquettes that leave little to the imagination. My thinking has been that clients and committees want to see what they are buying with as much detail as possible. I'm rethinking this approach and considering the notion of submitting loose proposals, rough sketches, vague text, ideas using broad strokes. Advisable ?

Roughly four years ago I visited an exhibition of commissioned work by Dale Chihuly and they had the proposal drawing hanging on the wall. They were as loose and open ended as could be. Those drawings got me thinking that perhaps I've been going about communicating with committees in the wrong way.

Loose vs. tight..........which works better ?
