The image is divided with a canal in the left half of the painting and the shore on the right side. A large green and white sailboat in the water, in the upper half of the image, is moored along the shore with buildings visible in the distance. A row of tall poles line the shore in the upper part of the image on the right. There is a straw-coloured heap of something between the poles, beside the ship. The shore is lined with a strip of green grass.
