On top of a table are a group of objects: a brown vase, fruit, books and a dish with a fan. In the background is a blue curtain, the leaves of a plant and a cylindrical tube propped up against a wall. It appears to be a random selection. However, Peploe deliberately chose these objects for their interesting shapes and colours. He uses a black outline to define their shape and then carefully arranges them so that they balance each other.
