This Harris painting, like many of his works, has a fun and whimsical nature to it. The trees are rounded and stylized, as well as the clouds and hillsides. The grey cloud in the middle of the sky actually helps keep the eye from moving off the canvas. In terms of composition, this is a brilliant trick, for without it the eye would follow the tall trees right out and off of the painting. That grey cloud moves the viewers eye across the painting at the crucial time just before the eye leaves the canvas. It leads the viewer to the lighter coloured hill in the background, which in turn brings you back to the bottom of the painting where the eye starts again.
