A colourful but muted watercolour of the side of a watermill and outbuilding. Although the outbuilding would probably have been whitewashed, Knox has shown that objects are rarely white but reflect the colours around them. As a result the building has been painted in a variety of cool blue greys that contrast with the yellow of the landscape and warmer red of the watermill. Although the buildings and surrounding hills have been painted as solid blocks of colour, the waterwheel itself and the distant trees have been painted as faint shadows in the picture.
