His work falls into two categories of landscape painting: the mountainous landscapes, lakes and valleys of Scotland, Wales and the north of England; and coastal scenes showing large expanses of sandy dunes. He was a master at depicting reflected light off wet sand or the still pools of lakes. He created idyllic country scenes, often populated by cattle or solitary figures. His attention to detail, particularly earlier in his career was almost Pre-Raphaelite in its precision but the overall effect is of the more romanticized British landscape tradition. The present work, with lobster pots in the foreground and the silhouette of a distant boat, demonstrates his mastery in creating the illusion of depth. Overhead, gulls fan out beneath rolling bilious clouds which signal the departing storm as it moves away beyond the distant headland.
