The painting is constructed of loose, suggestive brushstrokes. Depicted from above, a small cottage is in the foreground to the right atop a grassy bluff overlooking the ocean. The pitched roof of the blue-gray cottage is brown with two chimneys. The structure is situated close to the ledge. Tall, dark green foliage surrounds the cottage and the descent to the shore. The ocean appears calm, the bright sunlight reflected in the gentle waves. In the distance, a stretch of land is visible against a clear blue sky.
