Oil painting of two small girls, one standing and one sitting in a landscape. The standing girl on the right holds the ribbons of the other girl's bonnet, whilst she pushes her sister away with her left arm. The girls wear long white spotty dresses decorated with lace and ribbons, and blue bonnets decorated with ribbons. There is a curved tree trunk in the left background. In the right distance, there is a walled city made of white stone with a domed circular building with columns, similar to a classical temple, and a building with a spire. The girls were the daughters of Mary Heblethwayte, the dowager Lady Boynton, with her second husband John George Parkhurst.
