Note that the extracted 20-seconds demo clip on this page has been down-scaled from the original disk contents and further compressed in the web-friendly Flash video format; it therefore can not represent faithfully the end product's HD picture quality.

Just a few examples of the effects that you can observe in this animated painting (but not necessarily when watching this down-scaled extract from the episode): sun breaking through the clouds and illuminating the scene, ripples and sunlight shimmer in the water, movement of clouds (an effect of), rocking boats, flying seagulls, slightly moving silhouettes of the people by the boats, etc.
