The medium of oil helps in intensifying the beauty of the female form. In
India, during the monsoons, there are numerous swings hanging from sturdy
trees. Women sing and swing at the same time heralding a season of joy and
celebration. This lady on the swing belongs to the above genre but is seen in
isolation by the artist. The woman with attractive features looks ahead with
dreams in her eyes. Her long tresses are thrown back by the breeze. Her
well-endowed figure is elegantly covered with a saree attractive because of
its simplicity. The colours used for it enhance its sobriety. Any other kind
of ornaments, but the ones she wears, would have looked out of place. The
flowing ends of the saree lend movement to the painting.
In sharp contrast, the background is completely static - the rocks, the sky
and the tree, looking aesthetically beautiful. The technical dexterity that
makes the protagonist stand out, is sadly lacking in the background.
