Cezanne-like e'tude

It's September and I'm preparing to teach art to kids at Los Penasuquios and Del Mar Heights Elementary Schools. I've decided to do some lessons on Paul Cezanne's watercolors. Here's a still life in his style, with reiterated pencil lines and loose, brief watercolor. I learned that e'tude usually refers to a musical composition, intended mainly for practice of a particular technique. In Cezanne's case, he did many watercolor paintings as an e'tude. Versus, a tableau, where he would have taken great care in setting up a still life arrangement, before he painted it.
