Fresh and unusual viewpoints resulted from painting on the spot. Fred Sedgwick used a characteristic impressionist technique of cropping this picture arbitrarily on each side. Sedgwick (1873 - 1922) was a Pumpkin Cottage stalwart from 1893 and was the leading figure behind the revival of Silverstream as an artists' retreat immediately after Nairn's death in 1904.
