Watercolour over pencil heightened with bodycolour and stopping out. This is one of series of drawings by Cox of figures in seventeenth century costume on a terrace which date from the 1830s. They are sometimes based on the terraces at Haddon Hall or Powis Castle. For another example, see Scott Wilcox, Sun, Wind, and Rain ' The Art of David Cox, 2008, p.187, no.59.
