Narrative paintings

Gulls perch on the rooftops of old Polperro. They swarm around the young girl in the green cotton dress who throws bread to them. The day is bright, and the sunlight gleams off the bright slate roofs, and the whitewashed walls. The artist sits high on the hillside, and looks down on the river-boats. One steams down the river, only the plume of smoke visible behind the houses. And on the street, a couple walk down to the river, the girl wearing a white summer dress.
