A Toast to Bonnard. After visiting the “Bonnard” exhibition in Wuppertal, I set out to do a playful sketch with some aspects of his work in mind, particularly colour, perspective, an interior (table) scene and a cat making an appearance. I used my mother’s dining room as a base for a rough and distorted sketch of an interior and then added the rest from imagination. Ink pen and watercolour.
