A tracing/study of a young woman addressed by a small, supernatural figure situated in a rural landscape. The branch of a tree curves above the figure group with further trees and hills suggested in the background. The vague outline of a cross or spire is suggested at the very centre of the composition. A flock of sheep proceed from the centre of the composition with those in the foreground depicted in greater detail than those sketched in the background.
