Two vertical red-brown lines make up the bulk of this composition. The one on the left is a short, broad stroke, while the one on the right is longer and also hooks up towards the upper left corner in a J-shape. Overlapping these vertical strokes are broad purple-blue brushstrokes that bleed into red-brown. There are four very small and scattered drops of purple-blue in the upper right quadrant of the paper unconnected with the rest of the composition.
