Painting is a visual art, meant to be seen by the eyes and appreciated by the senses. Its not just colour and line that constitute a good painting but compositional and technical dexterity as well.

Portraiture has been one of the most popular segments of art. The sitter here is shown in three quarter profile. Her demeanor and ornaments, together with poise suggest of her royal connection. She wears simple clothes but ostentatious jewellery comprising of various necklaces and strings, bracelets, armlets and earrings. The head ornaments that she is adorned with are very typically Muslim. The maiden in the prime of her youth rests her hand on the chin. Her hands are decorated with designs with henna. The face has near perfect features, encompassed by curling hair.

The artist has enclosed his beautiful creation in niche. Pleased with the result of his subject, he took the background rather lightly. The vegetation behind the woman is placed quite awkwardly. The sky, having been given various tones, seems unrealistic. The artist happens to excel, albeit with a pinch of flaws.
