Colville noted in his official monthly report:

On 19 February I painted Shattered landscape. This was a broken house surrounded by huge trees which had all their branches torn off by bombs and shells. German shells kept passing over my head at ten-minute intervals, harassing a crossroads a few hundred yards behind me.
