Dry Creek Road

I joined Michael Johnson's class for a day of painting along the west branch of Oak Creek on Dry Creek Rd. We were joined by 2 of his students, Jan from British Columbia and Bill from Cincinatti. Dry Creek lived up to its name as there was barely a trickle of water. So, instead of painting the water over the red rocks, we set up on an overlook and painted the beautiful back ground scenery. I tried to concentrate on one Juniper that stood out.

The others took advantage of the vista to paint views of the distant red rocks with some of the greenery in the foreground. This was a good spot as there were many subjects to choose from. I have a feeling we will be going back there again.
