This is the painting of a young girl in a garden running after damselflies. Watching them with curiosity. And attempting to catch them.
In these paintings the emphasis is on simplification of figures and the use of few vibrant colours. Figure of a single girl child dominates the space, and even extends beyond it. The figure stands out with bold outlines. The lines run freely with rhythmic flow. The figures are graceful with lyrical subtlety.
Another emphasis is on the simplification of the face, with little concern for the details, and more importantly without the use of any colour or shade. The face is painted white as snow, depicting the innocence. It is such a simple and white colour face that any girl can see her face in it.
The radiant face of the girl stands out vividly against the thick lines of hair flying in all directions as the breeze pass through them. Sunlight of the garden can be felt on the face with shadow on the neck.
The feeling of colourful atmosphere of the garden full of flowers and the damselflies and butterflies is brought alive using a few vibrant colours with bold brush strokes.
The pure happiness in running after the winged beauties can only be experienced through the eyes of a child – it is an earthly paradise.
