About-to-be world travelers and visionary activists, this couple had a very clear ‘look’ in mind, but left the details to me.   The background painting was built up with multiple washes of watercolor until the saturation of color was deep enough to hold the white lettering.  Gold leaf applied to a splattering of gesso added just the right touch to the depth of rich color.

This is really a very simple piece but spectacular because it is vivid and deep.  The watercolor was ‘worked’ on the surface while wet to create unusual textures and blends.
