Dodge Bridge on the Rogue River en plein air
A painter friend and I went out Plein Air Painting again this week. We go out about every other week. This time we took a drive up Hwy 62 towards Shady Cove, turned off on Hwy 234 and drove over to Dodge Bridge. We spent about 3.5 hours on the Rogue River, painting the bridge, trees and the river. It was a most enjoyable outing! I saw flocks of geese flying overhead, swiftly flying ducks just above the river surface, amiable rafters floating down the Rogue, and the river.... I loved it! I was amazed at the amount of traffic that traveled over that bridge in the span of time that we were there! Even if I don't have a successful painting, I will have that day to remember! I do take lots of reference photographs, just in case I need to refer to them as I take my painting back to the studio to do the final "tweaking". The above photo is of my completed painting.
