Be the Good

I loved the double message of this quote since I first saw it.  I had to do my take on it. I molded the letters to fit into the world globe with a bit of curvature in the writing.

It became an experiment since I wanted the letters to stay light, I tested 3 different resists or masking fluids and here are the results.  The resist is like liquid rubber you can apply to mask the areas you don’t want covered by a layer of paint, it works well with watermedia. Here I used both gouache and watercolors.  Then to emphasize the message I did some outlining and light coloring with a color pencil.
