Stylised view of Sheffield Weir, looking up at the foaming white water as it cascades over the weir edge. There is a dark, urban landscape in the background. The direction of the rapidly moving water is accentuated by the linear quality of the water, formed in ribbons of pale blue and black lines. This depiction of water is reminiscent of a more Oriental style of painting.
