This scene of Haddon Hall in Derbyshire has great depth initially achieved by the river in the foreground. The landscape draws the eye of the spectator up to the historic hall. The buildings in the left adds with linear perspective. The foliage is depicted in a variety of greens and browns. The figures and cattle at the field boundary wall gives a sense of scale and movement to the composition. The architectural details and the masonry of the medieval hall are well rendered in watercolour.
