Shifting back to something more like my original plan, with fewer colours and more overlap does give pretty good results. It's both more subtle and yet feels a bit 'deeper'. So thanks for reminding me about that.

    OK, I've prepared an SVG file suitable for importing, and a transparent raster version.

    For fun, I've also prepared a map using the compass. It incorporates ideas from from my previous Bākoi and Portolan maps.

    Tweaked the line widths to give it all a bit more flow.
