Drawing. 17v consists of a distant low perhaps vegetated horizon on the far (southern) bank of the river, almost flat, a very thin double strip of pencil fading from left to right to almost nothing. On 18r, the riverbank strip of land expands from near nothing into the left midground to a more substantial indication of a roughly level ridge topped with vegetation in the centre, but fades again towards the right. Behind this strip in the right centre and right a hill rises steeply, dotted with occasional vegetation; behind this more distant similar rocky hills are visible, terminating in the centre left of the folio with a conical hill. The sky on both folios is blank. The sun seems to be shining from the left, ie approximately from the east/north east, which would imply the sketch was made early in the morning. The annotation in the base right centre of 18r reads: "Second cliffs very white".
A river estuary landscape with vegetation, and a colouring instruction.
