In 'The Idle Corner, Crowland' colour is used to highlight the effects of light on the quiet rural scene, with a careful tonal unity harmonising the entire canvas. Most revealing is Guthrie’s use of a square brush throughout, which grants the painting a firm and visible patchwork of brushstrokes, flattening the surface qualities of the image. This is indicative of the influence on the younger artist of Jules Bastien-Lepage, who used the square brush to impart a heightened sense of naturalism to his painting.
