THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
A small city scene can be seen in the background of the Zangu Painting, accented by colorful row houses and other buildings in red, blue and yellow. From this cityscape come several roads that intersect with one another at different angles, leading down from a small cliff that upholds this city. The path leads down to a more rural area that is covered mostly in green grass. In the foreground of the painting are two trees that tower high over top of a small riverbed. Surrounding the river are small, green bushes and other foliage that contrast against the city.
