Small Town Silos-6x6-SOLD

Sat in the truck for this one! coldest day of the year so far, i think (25 degree windchill). really like painting in the cab with the radio and heat going full blast.

have been concentrating on accurate drawing and values as of late. want to narrow the value range back to about three light values and three dark values. using accurate color is what will make similar valued objects stand out from each other.

ive done this place once before several years ago. this time i changed the composition.

Really nice, Mike. Great sense of solidity to the forms (well, I know the silos are hollow, know what I mean :)

don- give you something else to consider....if a hollow silo is filled with grain is it still by nature hollow. hmmmm LOL
thanks man!
