The captivating, inquisitive stare of a toddler - apologies - Captain Verity of the garden pirate boat, silently persuading those with bigger arms to push her swing, she has everyone wrapped around her tiny finger. She is the clear focus of the piece, with the foliage in the background fading into blurred and soft suggestions of leaves, in order to both draw out the foreground subject and create the impression of swinging movement.

The work is done entirely in acrylic paint on canvas. The main colour is a cerulean blue due to the matching dress and pirate boat swing.
