Van Gogh settled down next to a field with his sketchbook and black chalk. He studied the toiling peasant women carefully. He gives clear indications of the differences in their clothing, sometimes using just dots or stripes, sometimes adding blue chalk.
On the roof of the farmstead he has written ‘rouge’ (red). Usually when he made notes of this kind, it was because he intended to use the drawing as the basis for a painting. He probably didn’t get round to it; at any rate, no similar landscape in oils is now known to us.
