This evocative image of a landscape, based on a view of the River Severn at Shrewsbury, contains many details: a small bird sitting on a wall in the foreground, rows of vegetables growing in the fields and a walking figure. It is a work based on close observation from life and meticulous draughtsmanship.

The vertical format of the work is quite unusual for a landscape but works effectively, leading the viewer's eye up the paper and into the distance via the wall and twisting lane. It is this that draws attention to the distant human figure.
