The watercolour on paper is a spell-binding rendition of a landscape in an eye-catching shade of green. At first glance, the work seems like a burst of colour from within the pictorial surface. Upon closer inspection, one can see the subdued rendition of two huts on the left-hand side, accompanied by four unmanned boats tethered to the shore. On the right hand-side of the work, we can see the presence of a long boat, being rowed by a person in a standing posture, wearing red garments. Giving this person company is another human, seated low in the middle of the boat, dressed in an ensemble of grey. \nThe hill behind the huts is covered with lush green grass, and its colour seems to merge with that of the one that looks like a billowy cloud reaching the sky. These spurts of green cloud like entities merge in the centre of the work, thus adding a sense of perspective and magnanimity to the otherwise tranquil and sombre setting.
