A VISIT WITH CEZANNE IN MY KITCHEN. My watercolor class recently spent a session “painting with Cezanne”. Instead of reproducing one of his works, and rather than paint the Still Life we set up for our class, I chose to do my own “study”, pretending he was looking over my shoulder as I sipped my mug of Earl Grey and had a TCM marathon day. Even though I may see things differently than Cezanne saw them, his techniques and treatment of ordinary kitchen elements definitely challenged me to expand my personal style.
