The hand-coloured image is centered on the page, below the sheet music for “Spanish Ladies.” The image is outlined in a black rectangular frame, in landscape orientation. The background is pale blue, blending the distinction between sky and sea. On the left foreground of the image, two Spanish ladies with curly black hair are in profile, facing right, wearing black mantillas. One of the ladies is holding a fan and wears a red rose at her breast. Behind her fan, she gazes across the image to the sailor in the right foreground. The sailor smiles towards the ladies, and wears a blue jacket, a gold hoop earring, and a pigtail. On the sea behind them are several ships and a rowboat, sailing away from the viewer towards a green shore with small white houses with red roofs.
