Description
A view of a coastal village. In the lower right corner are two rusty barrels of brick-red and brown bands. Beyond the barrels to the right of centre is a large light blue-green house, with a brick-red roof and one brown window. A blue and white tent is set up in front of the house. A brown pole borders the right side of the house and tent. The pole extends from the top of the picture to just below the blue tent. A number of other buildings are found in the picture, though the upper left quarter contains only an area of grass and rock which merges into a strip of distant water. The brown-grey rock and water are distinguished mainly by different directions of brushstrokes. Beyond the water lies a broken horizon of grey land, and light blue sky.

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.
