This landscape is dominated by the large tree. The elements of nature benefit from the texture of the pastel by creating the effect of tangible foliage. The landscape is layered in bands of colour as it recedes into the distance. The artist makes full use of the coloured paper on which he has laid down the pastel. The patches of bare paper form part of the colour scheme for the sky. There is little doubt that this picture was rapidly sketched and one can sense the improvisation of the texture and the transitions of hue as the scene evolved before the artist.
