A small part of this picture trails onto 12v, showing a rocky outcrop with a man standing on top of it, with what looks like a large bird to his left. The man faces right, and thus looks out on the vista of MS.Add.7984: 13. This vista shows, on the left, a horizon of distant jagged hills, annotated: "Snowy peaks". In the centre and right, the horizon consists of the outlines of closer hills, their surfaces almost blank; the annotation above them in the left centre reads: "afternoon / bright light catching on the distant mountains". Across the whole midground, a ridge approaches the viewer from left to right, with some indication of occasional clusters of bushes on top, annotated on the right: "in warm shadow". What may be the course of the river is visible only on the right centre and right of the midground. The foreground shows the nearside bank of the river as a darkly pencilled strip of small bushes and grasses, in front of which an expanse of rough level ground is annotated in the centre: "very light".
A valley landscape, with a view of the distant peaks of the Andes, with colouring instructions.
