This work is largely monochrome, the form of negative space being outlined all the better for the horizontal and vertical lines that halt abruptly when they encounter it. This work's image is clear, and the texture and composition of the background and foreground give a sense of motion. The different orientation of the vertical lines used by the background and foreground help to emphasize that movement and direction, and the violet highlights on the diving bird's limbs/wings/feathers is similarly evocative.
