A kind of drawing of the water – as of that pool at night —  in tones — abstract but describing the surface of the water in its forms.  Da Vinci did this.  What did he say about such drawing?

But Bonnard is the one who teaches how to simplify a complex thing and the value of observing the details even without a context.  To understand the thing, to fix it in memory, to savor and live with it.  A part that adumbrates the whole.  Or that longs for it
