The sky is blue and the land is composed of several colours, such as blue, orange, red, purple, and green. In the lower left section of the painting a small part of one of the islands is visible. In the top two-thirds of the work on the left side a large island comprised of three large peaks dominates the space. Throughout the composition, much of the white support paper can be seen between the brushstrokes.
