We now return you to regularly scheduled programming, now in progress.
Over the last couple of years, I've found even more great spots in Sedona to paint. So, I decided I needed to create a second edition of my guide for plein air painters. The edition is now available, and it's available both as a spiral-bound paperback and as a PDF (Adobe Acrobat Reader) download.
The new edition has 43 pages plus 35 black-and-white photos. Readers asked, Why black-and-white? The reason is that it makes the book much more affordable - $10 for a hardcopy, $7 for a download - and as a painter, I'm more interested in design than color. The photos give you a good idea of the subject matter and the layout of the land. I find that's more important to me than knowing the red rocks are, well, red.
The book does include two versions of the map, full-color on the cover (which you also get with the PDF version) and black-and-white in the interior. I've updated the map, too, to show all locations.
Each location has a photo of the terrain plus a description of the general subject matter, as well as information on parking, restrooms and when the lighting is best.
If you're coming to Sedona to paint, I hope you'll get the book. It's a very handy reference. Believe it or not, I actually use it myself to remind me of where to paint when I'm drawing a blank.
