Silos at Dusk

8x10, oil on canvas panel

This is absolutely my favorite time to paint outdoors.  In this case the light was to the back which creates that wonderful rim light that you see on the edges of the silos.  The silos themself are almost flat, although I did add a bit of warmth to the rim light side...artist priviledge, right?  The sky has slightly more blue than the photo does.  Just couldn't get it all the work together, so I sacrificed the sky.
