Alport Mill in Derbyshire is a very atmospheric early watercolour. The rugged masonry of the mill is well depicted and smoke emanating from the chimney gives a sense of movement along with the chicken in the foreground. The waterfall adds to the cleverly created vaporous atmosphere. The foliage of the plants and trees is rich in form and colour.
