A landscape with a tree in a wood. On the left of the picture is a huge tree with a massive trunk and branches which take up the top half of the picture. The sky shows through the branches, and sunlight shines on the bark. Sitting on a gnarled root is a man in a red coat and hat. In the centre foreground are tufts of long grass and stony, sandy soil. Hills are visible in the distance.
