In the bottom right corner of the painting, there are two buildings placed at the bottom of a hill that has plants growing on it. Next to them is a small cluster of trees, close enough where their trunks are visible. In the distance, there are more trees running across the painting, however, only the foliage is visible. The leaves on these trees stand out because each individual leaf is inked. There is another small cluster of buildings on the far left of the painting behind these trees. Further in the distance are mountains.
