Sea before storm

More spirals! Also, me playing with watercolours for the first time since primary school. As a kid, I always found painting frustrating as hell. It was hard to colour within the lines with a brush, even harder to mix the same colour twice or to get a nice even fill... but when I doodled this page full of spirals, I realised that they wanted watercolours. To my surprise, the same blobby imprecision that put me off painting for decades now seemed more of a feature than a bug. (It probably helps that I've got significantly better at colouring within the lines :P)

The colour scheme reminds me of the sea in the afternoon sun as storm clouds gather. (I'm not sure whether the association caused the colours or the other way round.)
