Made with the page vertically, this is a continuation to the right of the horizontal view on D02215 (Turner Bequest XLVII 38).
There are colour trials on the verso (D41467).
Technical notes:
The sheet was torn from the book at the left and folded vertically, perhaps to facilitate viewing alongside the main part of the view noted above. For a proposed sequence for the leaves of the disbound Fonthill sketchbook, with this page as folio 56, see the Introduction.

Blank apart from pink and blue paint trials.
