Of the colour harmonies to be found in his pastels, Bernard observed: 'I select my palette carefully, always working with a limited number of pastels, although I like as many as possible to choose from. My colours for a particular picture are chosen as one might set a musical key, with chords, close harmonies, chromatic scales and carefully accented discords. I often do a series of pictures on a theme, the studio table for example, and I change the colour scheme as one would change key in musical themes and variations. Think first in tone, then translate tonality into colour; the secret of Fauve colour lies in the tonality. Bright colour is never crude and raw, but relative, modulated.' (Bernard Myers, 'Still life in pastel' in The Artist, May 1988, p. 16)
