View of a coastal village. Similar to WyC.01.245. In the centre is a small light blue-green house, with a brick-red roof. A grey tent with touches of blue sits in front of the house. Three clotheslines, with wash coloured red, pale orange, pale ochre, and blue, hang about the house. In the lower left corner are two buildings with quick indications of two small figures between them. One of the figures is stooping over to pick something off the ground. Many other buildings are scattered over the rough ground of grass, exposed rock and dirt paths. In the far background in the upper left is a indication of pale blue-grey water. The sky is light grey.

View of a grey-brown church encompassed by houses. The church is located in the foreground to the right of centre. The only side of the church which is in full view has no windows or doors. The church's bell tower has an orange cross upon it. There is an indication of a dirt road leading up to the left side of the church. The houses about the church are coloured blue-green, blue, ochre or white, with details in brown or black. The sky fills three-quarters of the picture. It is a medium blue tone behind the homes, but there is a mass of grey cloud with light yellow highlights directly behind the church bell. The upper sky contains plumes of cloud divided by fairly distinct lines of blue sky (composed of loose brushstrokes placed side by side). The lines of blue sky seem to radiate outwards, like wheel spokes, from a point to the left of the picture's centre. Signed, in the lower right, Catherine R. Whyte '68.
