The cart horse is the central focal point and one can sense the strength and power of the animal as it stands in readiness to pull the wagon. Two figures go about loading the wagon with their pitchforks. This would have been a rapidly painted watercolour just providing sufficient detail to bring reality and movement to the composition. The background is sketched in with colourwashes.
