PAINTING WITH BONNARD. One of the founders of the turn-of-the-century Les Nabis movement, Pierre Bonnard used intense and close value colors. We studied his technique by personal interpretation of one of his interiors—one of his many “open window” paintings. When I discovered that quite a few of my scraps and strips from old watercolors were close to his palette, I ended up with a collage approach to my own study. Other Intermezzo ladies painstakingly mixed colors from their own palettes to mimic Bonnard’s choices. Beautiful results!
