          Every inch of the nervous, bounding lines that define the woman's body is charged with erotic feeling, both pose and facial expression are intensely lascivious and the impact of the drawing is heightened by the extreme closeness of the two personae.

          The tempestuous carnal rhythms, and the representation of ecstatic emotion are Velasco’s tribute to the depiction of passion. The fecundity of the green color for flesh seems to be conflated with a charged sexuality of the bodies that together lend to this paintings its power.
