As this year’s Sedona Plein Air Festival comes to a close, artist and instructor Michael Chesley Johnson and Guerrilla Painter Carl Judson had a chance to spend some time just painting for themselves. Michael did a blog post about their brief sojourn.
“Carl and his products have been an inspiration for me over the years as I pursued my “backpacker painting” concept. He designed the 9×12 Guerrilla Painter pochade box I use nearly every day when I go out painting in oil. When I heard he was to be in town, I made sure we had time to visit.
“I took him out to Red Rock Crossing to paint. But rather than paint the iconic image of Cathedral Rock looming over Oak Creek, we chose to stay in the shade under the sycamores. Carl did a beautiful little painting of some of the local flora.”
