In a signature small panel work, Johnstone exhibits his quintessential technique of showcasing light and shadow within the landscape. Capturing the last remaining rays of sunlight hitting the face of the homes in Côte-de-Beaupré, the artist delivers a tight and intimate composition influenced by the European Impressionists and their peers. The golden yellows and ochres of the sun, carved into the rural landscape below bring light and warmth to the composition and highlight Johnstone's preoccupation with impressionistic light.
