Catherdal Rock

While visiting Sedona in February I was able to paint along Oak Creek and capture a view of Cathedral Rock; which is a famous landmark on the Sedona, Arizona skyline. Cathedral Rock is carved from a redbed sandstone formed from coastal sand dunes near the ancient Pedregosa Sea. This was my first time painting the red rocks of Sedona. The early morning and late afternoon sun offer the best opportunities to see extravagant colors created by the light reflecting off the rocks. You have to paint rather quickly because the light will change the colors of the rocks fast. I highly recommend a trip to Sedona if you haven't been there before.
