The Island of Elba lies off the NW coast of Italy, to the west is the Corsica and it has two small islands adjacent, Isola Capraia & Pianosa. Elba is famous because Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled there after the Napoleonic Wars.

Description of 3D Chart

The composition shows Elba in context with it’s surroundings – Corsica and Italy. In this case I used a modern colour chart from the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office – (UKHO). I could have chosen a different scale chart to just show Elba but it would have to be framed in a much larger frame.The Surround Lighting highlights the numerous Islands and depth features, the blue carbon gives a beautiful textured contrasting background

This Chart was commissioned as a gift fro a special birthday so the budget was a limiting factor. The chart was well received and is topical in conversation in its new home.
