Crossing the Stream (unfinished)

Object description

Unfinished scene of two young girls crossing a woodland stream. The fair haired girl to the right wears a pale dress, with her hands raised and one bare foot outstretched, a dark haired girl pulls a dark shawl across her shoulders. Stream to the left runs off into the background, lined on either side with trees. The characters look directly at the viewer, playfully balancing on rocks as they cross the stream.
