Ravilious and his wife lived in one caravan and used the other as a studio, both of which were concealed in bushes to avoid upsetting the landowner. This watercolour is a good example of Ravilious mark-making and dry brushwork which is a reflection of the season. There is a sense of modernity about the picture and the abstract shapes make this stylistically unlike the other work in the Fry collection.
