Rocky landscape of cliffs and boulders interspersed with vegetation. Waterfall and river at right. A pale baby blue pigment describes distant mountains, and this same blue is used as a wash throughout the rocks and mountains in the foreground and middle ground. A light coffee-colored pigment is also used as a wash throughout the foreground and middle ground.
