Drawn with the pages turned horizontally, the subject is continued on folio 120 recto opposite (D03144
; Turner Bequest LVI 118). It is one of a series of studies on the banks of the Rivers Garry and Tilt at Blair Atholl; see under folio 118 verso (D03141
; Turner Bequest LVI 116a).

(see the watercolour design, Tate D08134
; Turner Bequest CXVII G; and Tate impressions A00970–A00971
but there seems to be no strong evidence for this.
