Been thinking about Bonnard today. The freedom of his little notebooks comes back to me, and I am astonished at the obviousness of what I realized. Why didn’t I think of it before? If you want that sort of thing, you must simply try it. I don’t say my little sketches will compare with Pierre’s. But if I ever hope to make the drawings that do, I must first try.
Try, fail. Try again.
Succeed, enfin. Succeed at last!
