Although it is only mid-August, time is flying. I'm already looking forward to another season in Sedona and to my Paint Sedona plein air painting workshops. For the 2014/2015 season, I've located a number of new painting spots. If you've taken a Sedona workshop with me before, consider coming back - you will most likely see some new scenery!
Additionally, I've scheduled two special workshops for advanced painters: Exploring the Verde River Valley (January 13-16, 2015) and Advanced Color (January 20-23, 2015.) Of course, I also offer the advanced/retreat weeks for advanced painters and the "all level" weeks, which are suitable for beginners to plein air painting. You can find out details on all these weeks and also register at www.PaintSedona.com.
Also, I will gladly customize a workshop for you and your friends if you can bring at least three people. This could be a pastel-only workshop, or an advanced workshop on a particular theme, subject or technique. Your choice!
If you've not been to Sedona before, it is a wonderful winter getaway. (Keep in mind that I teach from November into early April, so it's not just winter but also fall and spring.) We may get a couple of storms in winter that may drop an inch or two, but the snow is gone the next day and just makes the red rocks that much more breathtaking. When the sun is out, which is most of the winter, it can be quite toasty when we paint. Daytime temperatures are generally in the 50s.
To whet your appetite, here are a few photos from some of my new locations. We'll have a big variety of subject matter to paint, and I'm eager to get into it.
