Purple Fynbos #252

Daily painting #252. 5"x7" oil on primed canvas panel

Fynbos is an Afrikaans derived word that refers to the floral species that grows in the winter rainfall area of the Western Cape. This floral species is so diverse with over 9000 varieties. I love the natural vegetation of the Cape and the colors and textures of the mountain side and hill sides. It also has a rather particular smell which just reminds me of the beautiful Cape....
I won't be returning to Cape Town until April next year which feels like a lifetime away so yesterday I bought home some of this beautiful fynbos for the table on my veranda. I went off to buy proteas from the flower market but couldn't resist these too!
