Here, painted on a broad horizontal panel, is a landscape with its rivers, date palms and dinghy boats, painted in pure blues, greens and reds. Between the spectator and the unfolding action of the picture, there are no formal boundaries, corresponding, as it were, with the unbounded character of the congruity we find in nature.

Palms are swaying in the gentle breeze, as the river flows with the grace of a dancer. Ordinary human figures appear in diminutive from and go about performing their chores, yet enveloped in solitude. Nature in its totality, with its varied physiognomy seems to engage the artist and he uses these human figures to infuse activity and movement in a stagnating landscape. He has manipulated form-structure wherein the subject and style mutually support each other.

The artist has emphasized distance by the use of color. Blue catapults the landscape in front while the rest push back the area in direct relation to the depth of the color. Not only that, the omnifareous blue color infuses a deepening of tonal vision. Red and yellow of the hut roofs are the only bright spots in a landscape otherwise monopolized by blues and greens. The luminosity is further enhanced not only by the masterly handling of blue but by creating perspective by using other colors. The blue areas in the background are at the same time in dynamic equilibrium with the blues in the foreground.

The dramatic intensity of all the components integrated in an unlimited panorama of details, reveal the relation between life and natural things and the space in which they revolve.
