At Africa’s southern tip, where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, lies the Cape of Good Hope (the pink-and-white “hook” in this piece), with its local city, Cape Town. Almost a well-kept secret, The Cape is arguably the most beautiful place on our planet.

The ocean here consists of nearly-standard “bathymetric” (sea depth) colors. The shapes there don’t represent any real depth data, they simply lead the eye towards the Cape of Good Hope itself and give motion to their space on the canvas. The land is brushed into shapes much less swoopy and which hint at the semi-desert near The Cape.
The colors chosen for The Cape and surrounds are inspired by the beautiful King Protea flower, which grows in the wild only in that area, unique in all the world.
