Mt. Rundle is normally portrayed focusing on the gently sloping west face, but the cliffs on the northeast face are spectacular, revealing its geology and standing guard over the Bow Valley. The hard limestone summit soars from the Banff Shales layer, enshrouded in cloud resting on its flanks. Trees are used to create depth, by forming a foreground and diminishing in size as they move further upslope. For me this painting echoes traditional Chinese landscape, with a vertical arrangement of elements to portray distance, mist connecting the foreground with the midground, and deep blacks reminiscent of ink.
