Look closely at the drawing on the left, especially the wall which is made of rough cypress panels. Though Caroline changed the color for artistic effect, this is what they really look like. Notice how every plank of wood is unique. You can see the grain of the wood, and even a couple of knotholes.
Now take a look through the windows of the front door. “The wind was howling ferociously.” See the wind howling and blowing? It’s so strong that it looks like it knocked one of the fence rails down!
How does the whole drawing make you feel?
