    Wendy, I'm so glad you mentioned sumi-e. I'm teaching it to my high school students next week. The advanced kids act like they've heard and done everything. Once I said I'd be introducing sumi-e, I actually peaked their interest. I like teaching sumi-e right before we introduce watercolor because it develops a sensitivity for brushstrokes.

    I just want to piggy back on all the artists mentioned so far (Sargent, Fish, etc.) and add Edward Hopper to the list. Both his watercolors and Sargent's have a freshness to them that their oils don't (in my humble opinion).
