Restful River - A watercolour painting by John W Johnston

"Restful River"

Like so many of my paintings, this was copied from a picture in a book. This one actually taught me a very valuable lesson. The painting was nothing like what it was supposed to be and I was very disappointed. Thankfully, I had made my own rule to never throw away one of my efforts and put this one away in disgust. Some weeks later, having forgotten how the 'original' looked, I saw this in a new light. I'm glad I did.
