A thin kimono rests delicately across her thighs as she dries off. The background has been left sort of out of focus or perhaps hazy from the steam of her bath. Caught in a candid moment of tranquility, and personal privacy, the beauty's portrait is captured seemingly without her notice or regard to the audience.
