Walter Withers depicts in this work a number of sheep on Mr Tom Orr’s property. Our view is from the rise above what is now Wingrove Park, from the Lower Plenty side of the nearby Diamond Creek, looking northwards towards the main Eltham township. The mood of this work is warm and vibrant, with the use of strong blues and pinks, and this stands in marked contrast to the softer, cooler greens used by Walter Withers in his work ‘The Silent Gums’.
