&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 />

Here, caught in a sudden downpour, people rush along the steep hillside.  Bamboo bends under the force of wind and rain, and the people in the foreground mimic this downward motion in order to shield their eyes from the water streaming upon them in torrents.  Masterfully depicted, the viewer can almost feel the bullets of rain, and sense of sympathy for these unfortunate travelers.<br />
