A landscape with a cluster of farmhouse buildings on the left, with a triple arched bridge on the right marking the river as it meanders to the left. The banks of the farmhouse lead to a motionless river that is highly reflective. The boathouse to the far left features a circular window which is emerging from the water. Three bare trees are central to the image, indicating that it must be late autumn or winter. There is a church spire visible in the distance. The landscape has been painted with a palette knife, creating a dense, thick texture to the scene.
