Done in Lee Long Looi’s usual style of elongating the features of women, imaginative detailings were painted in the background. Lee Long Looi creatively brings a mundane scene in life such as this work to a whole new level by using hues of brown, making it a visual treat altogether. All the colours, shapes and use of space work harmoniously together, unified and pleasing to the eye. The artwork is the epitome of simplicity at its best.
