Catalogue entry

Beyond the screen of trees and thick foliage, a hill is indicated in the distance on the left, annotated ‘G’, presumably for green. This is probably a Devon scene given that adjacent sketches are identified as such. The woodland scene on the recto (D08504) may have been drawn nearby.
