I want to do another dark pond like the Agenor’s Friends painting I did years ago. (I miss Agenor, what a great fish.) So I have begun making a few little “dark pond” drawings.
I began this one in watercolor. I shall have to go forward with it, I suppose, though I hate to lose the white of the paper. But it can hardly be a dark pond if it isn’t dark.
This is an early drawing I did for Agenor. And it became this — eventually.
As I say, I have been missing Agenor. He was Bonnard’s fish, though, not mine. Wish I could find a picture of Bonnard’s painting on the internet, but I am the victim of my own enthusiasm for him. Each search I do on “Agenor” and Bonnard brings up my own stuff.
