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.
