In a display of athleticism, the model leaps across the picture plane. This athletic nude is characterized by movement and energy. The lighting accentuates her athletic form, the firm musculature defined by the interplay between highlights and shadows. While some of her form is clearly in focus, others blur in a sense of movement. Her left hand, for example, project towards the viewer yet remains out of focus. Her hair also flows behind her, much like an agitated flame.
Despite her strong, athletic appearance, there is a sense of grace and elegance in her pose. With her legs extended effortlessly and her toes pointed, she resembles both an athlete and a dancer. Her expression is one of focus and determination, with her eyes cast downward and her lips tightly pursed. With all her limbs turned outward, she gives off the impression of being confident and triumphant. Faint rays emanate from her head, enhancing her fiery and triumphant persona.
Her face is crisp, but her arms are blurred in motion. Her hair trails behind her and earrings swing as she jumps. A halo radiates from her head and an ornate design textures the background.
This piece is composed of muted hues that approach grey, black, and white, but have a hint of warmth. The midtones and highlights have a slightly golden hue. The lack of saturation helps emphasize the dynamic lines of the athletic nude.
