You are probably aware of him already, but just in case - Winslow Homer i=
s a=0Afabulous watercolor painter. The story goes that he switched later=
in life to=0Awatercolors as a primary medium, not merely a preliminary s=
ketch tool. Unlike=0AAlbrecht Durer (whose watercolors are so incredibly=
meticulous), Homer had a=0Avery loose style and maybe this would encoura=
ge your students rather than=0Aintimidate them.
Good luck. I teach watercolors to HS kids and it is definately a laborio=
us=0Aprocess for everyone involved. Maybe too mechanical for you, but I =
do stress=0Aa very basic step by step approach; building up layers from l=
ight to dark,=0Apainting in large areas first, etc.
Getting them to see the white of the paper as a more beautiful white than=
the=0Aone from the box is always a challenge.
