A horizontally oriented landscape with a dark, reddish-brown windmill depicted slightly to right of center and forming a strong vertical against a broad expanse of sky. The sky is represented as three, wide horizontal bands: The upper and lower cloud bands are mauve. The center band is a luminous sky blue streaked with yellow and white. A thin, darker blue band (sky or sea?) marks the horizon line. A low-slung, red-roofed, dark cottage is situated at left. A gridded bridge stretches horizontally across the painting and is reflected in the water, as is the long, slender, bright red boat at left. A woman and Holstein-Friesian black-and-white cow are depicted crossing the bridge. The dark shadow of the windmill is reflected in the foreground water band, as are two pools of skylight.
