&quot;The mountain occupies most of the landscape, but the entire mountain appears somewhat one-dimensional and it becomes hard to recognize any sense of recession within the landscape.&nbsp; The effect of learning from woodblock paintings and manuals can also be seen in Taiga&rsquo;s bold, dark outlines that are supposed to represent to the ruggedness of the mountain.&nbsp; Finally, because Taiga did not provide a detailed rendering of the waterfall, and instead portrayed it with minimalistic brushwork, the waterfall seems to have lost a sense of motion.&quot; The background of the painting is gold.<br />
