an abstract watercolor of overlapping turquoise spirals accented in coppery gold by Amy Crook

Whorled, 8″x8″ watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

Swirls and whorls and spirals decorate this beautiful turquoise abstract. The shining texture of the overarching spiral gives it a dragon-like feeling, with its copper eye and snakelike head at the center.

The detail photo has perhaps the best color, but like so many things in life this one has to be seen live to be properly appreciated.

One patron said, “Oh, it’s another Moana painting!” and while they’re not wrong, this one has more of a sly, sideways reference, bursts of shining heat within the ocean’s cool blues rather than a direct quote.

Above, you can see the sun shining off the iridescent paints, bringing out the coppery and turqouise tones. Below, the painting is framed and waiting to bring something shiny into your day.
