The image attracts attention by enhanced lighting
in the center while the background is dark.
At a closer look we can admire dynamic interaction between a swan and dragonfly. Both animals seem like frozen in time which makes the motion effect even more emphasized.
While the foreground is very light and focused, the backside elements are darker and blurry causing a picture to look more 3-dimensional.
In this piece of art an author presents very good painting skills. Details are painted very sharp using very thin brush, while general elements are painted with thick one and look more "oil painted".
The proportions of objects are maintained and expression on the face of a swan is very well reproduced and exposed. The anger just erupts from the eyes!
I consider this work as very eye-catching and showing excellent painting skills.
