Sandalstrand is bathed in sunlight, but the weather is about to change. Dark clouds are approaching over the mountains in the background. On the left we can see Gamlestova (the old cottar’s cabin), Kjøkkenstova (the kitchen cabin) and løa (the barn). Astrup made several woodcut versions with variations on the motif, and he also used the woodblock as part of the process in creating this painting. The motif is a mirror image, and the mountains, which are actually situated west of Sandalstrand, have now ended up in the east. One possible explanation is that Astrup may have drawn the motif directly on the woodblock, which, when printed, produced a mirror image.
