The subject of this painting is David Hockney in Yorkshire in the north of England, and you can see the scenery near the village of Warter. The shallow foreground shows a tall tree and some bushes of daffodils. The majestic fig is the central focus of the work. In the background you can see another dense bush with a pink hue. The roads on the left and the buildings on the right provide signs of human habitation. The overlapping branches of the trees form a clear pattern, clearly delineating the winter sky. After painting in California in the late 1990s, Hockney turned his attention to the landscape of his hometown in the early 21st century.
