The painting emphasises the whaleback forms of glaciated rock surfaces in the Swedish coastal archipelago. The Swedish are ardent sun-worshipers in the summer months while the pink colours of the granite rocks produce many subtle tones in the northern light, blending with the forms of the human figures. The style is to some extent reminiscent of art deco, which I feel suits the subject.
