An unusual and extremely atmospheric watercolour landscape depicting a silver grey rainbow over a small mill tucked into a hollow in an almost golden hillside. Farm buildings and mills were a popular (and challenging) topic for Knox as he tried to capture what was essentially a ‘white box’ and attempted to give them volume and make them three-dimensional on the paper. Although most of his watercolour sketches which are untitled and unidentified views of the Manx landscape, Knox's niece identified this as being a study of a rainbow produced by the rays of the moon.
