A background of different shades of terracotta cover the canvas.  In the bottom left corner are five boys in different stages of jumping from a pier into the water .  Two of the boys are still standing on the pier, knees bent, ready to jump, one of them looks out towards the viewer.  Two of the boys jumped moments before and their feet are just touching the water.  The main figure of the painting is centred in this scene.  This boy looks our at the viewer in mid flight having jumped, but has not hit the water yet.  His arms are stretched out and you can feel the sense of fun and freedom.
The brush strokes are loose, close up they look casual.  Standing back your imagination fills in the detail.A background of different shades of terracotta cover the canvas.  In the bottom right corner are three boys on a log in water, perhaps their local river.  The boy on the left is sitting on a log, you see him in profile.  The boy in the middle is facing you and standing on the log, arms up as he tries to balance.  The boy on the right in standing in the water, you only see his top half and imagine the rest of him is in the water, he holds the log for his friend.  the brush strokes are loose, close up they look casual.  Standing back your imagination fills in the detail.
