This painting was a challenge to myself to create an entire watery world using only one color of paint --Phthalo Turquoise ( DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolor). Is it a drowned garden with fish as sentinels? Or is it a riotous rose garden haunted by flying fish?

Is anyone else up for the challenge of doing a painting using a single color?
