The sweeping of the paint allows Jan Ros to define the subject of the work less literally. It functions as a way to un-focus. As a result the image becomes much more romantic, often in contrast with the subject. He is introducing a subjective element, by which the way of looking, perception, becomes a lot more personal and individualistic. The form is simply just less defined.
