This piece "Landscape" shows a unique texture of mountains and rocks. The rocky mountains stand tall from the front to the back. On the side of the squared rocky mountainside, parallel silhouettes are layered repeatedly. The texture of the mid-section and the mountains in the back was presented in a squared surrounding method. As the parallel silhouettes move along, they take up space in the upper-right or upper-left direction, creating volume. The technique is similar to the piece "Baoensi" by Shixi. The grass leaves are dense and the moss dots are crowded. But as the brush goes heavier, the body becomes thicker and more solid. This is Huang Jun-Bi's unique style.
