The model in this painting is Leech's wife Elizabeth Leech. Sunlight bursts in strongly from the left of the painting and highlights the fine bone structure of Elizabeth's face and hands. Leech has painted her in the contemporary clothes of a modern woman. The cadmium yellow of the cardigan, painted in thick impasto to create texture, vibrates against the viridian green of the umbrella, which casts green shadows on the model's shoulders.
