Thickly textured areas of pale green and light tan depict a sunlit hillside which occupies the left, center and much of the lower half of the scene. At lower center, darker greens and purples indicate shade in a ravine leading downward. Just beyond the hillside, at upper center, the rooftop of a small house is visible, also bathed in bright sunlight. At upper right, the land drops off sharply, and bright blue and turquoise ocean fills the distance, with a strip of pale blue sky visible at top.
