This extensive landscape and cloud study features two young figures by a small, smoky fire where they were having their picnic. The rapid notation of the ever-changing clouds creates a changing mood. There appears to be a source of light through the clouds at the horizon. The picture has depth through successive planes building up the landscape. The large tree has dense, dark foliage. The loan figure in the mid-ground would have been part of the picnic party.
