A view from the hills of a coast town on a rainy day. The foreground is full of local colour of the green foliage in the grass and bushes and trees in browns. In the mid-foreground there are sheep grazing in the fields. The town within the bay is picked out in the atmospheric blue colours resulting from the veil of atmosphere created by distance and the effects of the rain. This early picture shows the artist has mastered the difficult art of aerial perspective creating depth within the composition.
