CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A detailed watercolour depicts a winter scene with a man wearing snowshoes at the centre of the image, walking into the foreground. He is dressed in a brown coat with a red scarf and is pulling a sled behind him on the left and carrying a stick or gun in the other hand. A dog is running beside the sled. There is some brown vegetation poking through the snow in the mid-ground and immense blue mountains with white caps in the background.
