Johnston’s signature exploration of light creates mystery behind this particular landscape. He makes use of a transparency technique to make the bare trees seem even more desolate, as if to suggest the fragility of nature. However, his urgent brushstrokes create a rough texture, in which the fortitude of the Canadian outdoors is manifested.
