"The majestic eagle, clothed in sleek layers of feathers, stretches its huge wings while soaring high across the distant mountain peaks. The difference in the thickness of the lines running vertically and horizontally portrays a saturated boundless sky, allowing the eagle to fly freely. In contrast, the unique pine trees are mounted on the edge of the rough and rocky mountains, looking evergreen from afar. The dreamy skyline and misty mountain valleys are seen emerging from the combination of light and dark hues, setting a magnificent scene at a glance."
