CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A coloured sketch depicts a coastal scene with various figures in bathing suits seated and standing atop a hill in the foreground on the right. At the base of the hill on the left side of the image, a road is curving around the hill with four motorcyclists driving along it. There are crescent shaped yellow patches before each cyclist, presumably representing the light cast by the headlights of the motorcycles. Beyond the road is a large body of blue water with low, sand-coloured land in the distance beyond. The sky is blue and white.
