Those unable to view the beautiful transformation of Kaniva and Goroke's silos in Victoria's Wimmera region in person, will be able view the process from the comfort of their own home.

The painting of new silo art projects in the West Wimmera Shire are currently being captured by cameras in real time and showcased online for everyone to see.

GrainCorp silos at Kaniva and Goroke are being painted as part of a new silo art project in the shire.

Artist Geoffrey Carran has been busy painting birds on the silos at Goroke, while Melbourne artist David Lee Pereira is working on a falcon and flowers on the Kaniva silos.

New weather-proof, live-streaming cameras have been set up at both sites to capture all the action. The cameras take a photo every few minutes and automatically upload the images online.

West Wimmera Shire Council Chief Executive Officer David Leahy said the technology was a great way for people to keep in touch with how the murals were progressing.

"In these uncertain times, people aren't travelling around as freely as they used to," he said.

"These cameras mean people can keep in touch with these exciting projects in West Wimmera Shire, without having to leave their home."

Despite the ability to bring both transformations into the houses of many, Mr Leahy said while the photos are great, nothing beats being able to view the silos in person.

"The photos really don't do these amazing projects justice and we hope tourists will come and see the new artworks in person once they are able to," he said.

Council is delivering this project on behalf of the community, which was successful in getting funding through the state government's Pick My Project campaign.

Anyone planning on visiting the sites to see painting in action must abide by all safety measures in place, including exclusion zones.
