“Canyon Shadows” and “Minor Adjustments” Western Art Watercolors by Debbie Flood

I finished two watercolors, since I last posted.

This one is Canyon shadows, 16 x 16 inches square on 300lb Arches Watercolor Paper.

During my trips out West, I saw a lot of different rock formations, and the shadows became spirits of the west, to me. Large birds of prey would fly over-head and their shadows would flicker across the ground, rocks, and on me. When I started this painting, I didn’t have a thought about those shadows, until I got a little more into the painting, and I realized what was spooking the horse and making the young Cowgirl look quickly. This shadow of the Eagle coasts across the canyon and soars up across the horse and rider. I could have worked up more detail in the background and brought you along on my exact journey, but because I see so many different things in this painting, I decided to stop here, and let you ‘see’ what might be there, for spirits, feelings, and shapes. Enjoy.

I want to thank Darren Corson, for the use of his gorgeous Eagle in flight photograph, for the shape of this Eagle shadow.

This New Mexico Watercolor painting is finally finished. This one is headed to the Photographer and Printer Tomorrow. If you are interested in a Limited Edition Print of 50, let me know. The prints will be the same size as the original on velvet Watercolor paper with a one inch white border. $100.00 USD.

This painting is of the Tour Guide that took me and a few others out on a Horse back ride in the forests and Mountains of Angel Fire, New Mexico. I just love the land out there, and the horses were great!

I hope you enjoy these two paintings, and if you are interested in purchasing, as always, you can send me an email. I’d love to hear from you.

Have a great week.
