    Although Chen Hengke was deeply concerned with the fate of traditional Chinese art and believed in the value of traditional Chinese painting, he himself was not strictly conservative in art. Indeed, this painting has vividly shown his departure from the orthodox approach of the "Four Wangs". Within a traditional composition of Chinese landscape, he has used short and bold lines to outline the shapes of trees and mountains. When it came to the textures of mountains and rocks, he has used an array of different shades of color rather than the traditional cun textural strokes.

    儘管深信中國傳統繪畫的價值並為其未來發展之命運憂心忡忡,陳衡恪本人在技法和風格上卻並不保守。本幅即體現他與"四王"完全不同的個人風格。在傳統的山水構圖中,用於造型勾勒的線條短促有力。在塑造山石形體與紋理時,他使用的是大片深淺不同的著色而非傳統的皴法。
