The picture is similar to an illustration of a book, resembles a sketch. The heroes of the composition are depicted in such a way that it becomes clear that harvesting hay is difficult. The girl in the foreground slouches a little, and either stops, or her movements are slow, because she is already tired. The man behind her carries hay, bent on his weight. It can say that the canvas is realistic, it captured the moment of rural work as it is, without a romantic touch.
