"Cedars at Northeast Creek"... 8x10" oil on linen panel, en plein aire by Bernie Rosage Jr., 11-15-2009.
This painting was painted en plein aire with the OOPS (Onslow Outdoor Painters Society) group that I paint with once a month. Sunday was gorgeous... we were just coming off a week long rain (approx 15 inches according to the local weatherman) and the sunshine and mild temps made the day perfect. We painted at the boat access area of Northeast Creek Park in Jacksonville, NC. The water was high due to the previous week of rain but that never hindered us a bit. I simplified the scene by editing man made objects like a gazebo and power lines (check out the video to see) and went for the essence of what drew me to the scene... the light on the reeds contrasted against the dark cedar trees.

I like the video. This could be quite profitable in explaining thought and technique behind the paintings to get the people involved.
