there is a deep sea between saying and doing

The start of my project thus far for proverb, "there is a deep sea between saying and doing." Going for a dark, cool color palette, reflective of a stormy sea. Hoping to incorporate some illustrative qualities, and a variety of lettering styles, most of them somewhat simple and organic. Perhaps all white against a dark sea?

I am beginning to work on the compostion as a whole. Below is my first shot at it. I hope to elaborate more withn the script text, perhaps adding some flourishes, curves, and variation. I am also going to work more on the last two words, "saying & doing" because I want the "saying" to look sort of weak and limp compared to the "doing" which I want to stand out.
