Painted this same water tank on my last visit and had a few requests to paint it again. Caught it on just the right day for the sunset and made sure to try and catch the light effects. I have seen a lot of this old style of water tanks around Napa and Sonoma but this one is my favorite. It sits on the edge of a walnut orchard and has been severely weathered. The old door and window are covered in plywood for now and some of the siding boards have fallen off. This 8x10 field study just focuses on the structure and the evening light. I may soon do a 9x12 of the same scene showing the trees etc. stay tuned.
