A glowing sun floats through the sky, almost blending in with the rest of the view; its light, already coloured by the red sunset, illuminates the entire scene.

Below the horizon, the majority of the canvas is taken over by the circular shapes of the houses. This harmonious, wave-like effect suggests the architecture merging with the surrounding mountains, and the elongated shadow cast by a brightly coloured tree. The varied motifs of stripes, curves and grids -- partly inspired by the tiles displayed in Portuguese palaces -- recalls the effect of a patchwork quilt and gives the painting an almost tactile quality.
