Buckets and Tanks

Here is a painting of one of my fascinations – water towers. I’ve painted tons of these things in the last few years, but usually of the city variety. This is really my first time painting the good ol’ rural variety (aside from my drawing of the Sudbury water tower) so I decided to go all out and paint 12 of them in one piece.

Buckets and Tanks

I love the water towers in the city because of their old, wooden plank siding, and for their appearance in comic books. I love this type of tank because they come in so many different shapes and colors- and sometimes they look like spaceships.

Prints of this piece are available in my Etsy shop.
