The basic idea is that White tries to drive the Black king towards the corner that is the same colour as his bishop.

YES but this one isn't intuitive for most of us so more than just the basic idea is very useful,  It helps to give as much detail as possible here such as using the K + Kt to control the squares the bishop can't and forcing the lone King into smaller and smaller triangles, etc
