A drawing base off Fragonard Jean Honore Painting - "The Swing". I change a little things from Honore's original paining. For example, the fence in the background, the full moon, the man in the back is no longer holding the rope instead he is holding a bow and arrow, and the man on the floor has a an arrow through his heart. What I tried to do was to make this more of a sinister scene, by trying to make the seen look like its in a cemetery. There are many ways to look at this. One way is how Honore base it off where women back then were not allow to show their undergarments. Taking from that, the guy on the floor got a look at them. Because of that, old man, the guardian of the woman, holding the bow and arrow shot one of his arrows at the man on the floor. He did this to make sure that the man would not speak of what he has done. Guys are know to talk about women they kissed and far the gotten, and that can start rumors which could leave the women with a bad image. To prevent that from happening, the old man did, what had to be done. The angel on the grave stone will keep this secret and bury it inside their graves. That's one way looking at it, another one would be a love story gone wrong. It just depends on how you chose to view it. Hope you all like it and thank you for taking you time to read this description.
