The artist has caught the expression demeanor and grace of the subject with precision. The life-size portrayal of the female form reveals the magic oil colours can simulate. Various shades of ochre give the skin a natural tone and judicious shading accentuates the contours of the body. The features are well defined and the artist seems to stick to realism and makes no effort to perfect the broad chin. To counter the warm skin tones he uses the cool blue and green for the attire. One end of the blue shawl covering her head falls in the front while the other falls back revealing well-contoured shoulders. A short blouse barely conceals the well-endowed body. She wears ornaments of tribal design. A rip in her blouse is an unnecessary addition, coming in the way of overall elegance.
The back ground is calm yet non-descript & helps in no way to either increase or decrease the poise of the female form.
