We see what appears to be simultaneously underwater and above the clouds, an unclad woman swimming or perhaps flying. The serpentine lines of the body are juxtaposed with the random crinkling of light filtering through the surface of the water, billowing clouds, and rising bubbles. The color blue predominates the composition, the figure standing out in warm contrast.

Her arms reach backward, fingers outstretched as she propels herself forward into the empty space. The erratic lines of the background comprise a variety of areas of blue textures. Ripples run like horizontal tiger stripes near the top of the composition. Branches of light extend downward in front of the figure. The bottom of the image is framed horizontally by the feathered line of the clouds.
