This drawing is horizontally oriented. It is surrounded with rose, gold, and mint matting; a scroll that reads “H. Saftleven” is juxtaposed over the mattings. The actual work depicts a river scene, with a cliff on the shore of the river to the right. On the cliff are buildings, including what looks like the ruins of a castle tower. A tree leans to the right over the edge of the cliff. Ships populate the river, including one at the shoreline, in which a person is seated, while another person straddles it and a dock.
