This is a watercolour measuring 16.6 cm x 25.7 cm showing a mounted man, possibly the squatter Harry Thomson. Two dogs run behind him as he rides along a meandering trail left by wagon wheels. Forests stretch away behind and native gums dot the Challicum Hills which rise out of the forest treetops. The artist, Duncan Cooper, included this painting as the thirteenth watercolour in his field sketchbook and inscribed the title 'Panorama of Challicum, No. V' on its mount. The watercolour is the fifth of nine panoramas which together form a 360-degree cyclorama of the Challicum area of south-western Victoria.
