View 1 - Young women in bathing suits pose for a painting inside a small boat on the beach, fighting off a sea dragon. The sea dragon's head, which is possibly made out of cardboard or papier- mache, appears to be sticking out of the sand in front of the boat; one of the women holds a sword in mid-air. The artist kneels on the sand painting an animated version of the scene in front of him.
