|"Beaver Creek Ledge" 9x12 oil|
When the sun hits the water, it creates a beautiful, luminescent olive glow.
I wanted to share with you some of my latest small plein air paintings. These were done over the last few weeks either as workshop demonstrations or while painting with my local group. Either way, each of them was a joy to paint. I'll be posting more on my new website over time. You can see (and buy!) these and others on my "Small Paintings" page: http://www.mchesleyjohnson.com/small-paintings/
|"Coffee Pot Ridge, Overcast" 9x12 oil|
We do get our share of dull days in Sedona. On this day, rather than "push" the color,
I strove to be as accurate in my color notes as possible.
By the way, I am starting a new project. As many of you know, in addition to my books and videos, I offer online courses through Udemy. I hope to have a new course completed by this summer.

|"Oak Creek Rush" 9x12 oil|
This was a little piece I did along the creek while the waters were rushing full-tilt with snowmelt.
|This was painted at one of my favorite spots that requires a climb up to a ridge to get the view.|
I like the morning light on the cliffs.
|"Seven Warriors" 9x12 oil|
This is only right half of the "Seven Warriors" formation. I went out painting with my
friend. ML Coleman, and he painted the left half.
