"Leaving the Market at the River Port" features a woman on a bicycle. The bicycle has a front basket that is brimming with an array of colorful flowers, which are rendered in a vibrant mix of reds, blues, and whites, giving a cheerful accent to the central part of the artwork. In the background, there is an impression of a quaint landscape featuring simplified, almost abstract, shapes of buildings and trees. One of the structures is colored in a warm red which draws the eye, contrasting with the cooler blues and greens of the surrounding landscape. The sky seems to blend into the background with soft blues and whites, creating a sense of openness. The overall texture of the painting is quite rough due to the use of cement. The style is loose, emphasizing color and form over detail, which gives the painting an evocative, dreamy atmosphere.
