The colors are surreal and magical. They are subtle, with a gentle light. The haziness of the foreground adds to this effect. The framing draws the eye to the figure. Her red hair is a riveting contrast. Her black makeup and dress add to the fantastical feeling of this picture, as do the feather and other accessories. Her haughty pose looks natural, because it isn't stiff. I could imagine her slinking down the stairs. She looks like a queen. The title seems appropriate, because the colors are both cold and summery, in that they are a washed-out golden and green. I like it. It's perfect just the way it is.
