This painting depicts the mountains after the spring rain. This is the “Baishi Mountain” located in Laiyuan County, Hebei Province, China. The author uses the painting technique of splashing ink to show the humid climate in the mountains, as well as the spectacular scene of clouds floating. The clouds in the painting are the natural texture produced by the collision between water and ink, so this painting has the characteristics of non-reproducibility. The dripping ink of the cloud in the middle scene contrasts strongly with the solid texture of the mountain. It combines hardness and softness, harmonizes yin and yang, and has a vivid charm.
