Arctic Night - a watercolour painting by John W. Johnston

"Arctic Night"

An experiment in trying to create a painting using just one colour. It was not as difficult as I'd expected. I laid a lightish wash first and then kept adding in increasingly darker tones as I added depth and structure. I wish the boat was a little more prominent but otherwise I'm quite satisfied with the overall result.
