Rumbles in the Sky Western Watercolor by Debbie Flood

This is my latest Watercolor painting, Rumbles in the sky. This painting is 22 x 29 inches on 300lb Arches Watercolor Paper. $2,500.00 Inquiries to purchase may come to my email, debflood@debfloodart.com Thank you.
This painting went relatively easy, to my surprise. I have never painted this large in watercolor before. But given the subject matter and what I wanted to say in the painting, it needed to be painted large. I photographed the subject at a Barrel Racing event. It was mid morning and the morning light was illuminating her braid, hat and the horse, bouncing light around on the white markings of the Paint Horse. In order to show these elements, it just had to be a large image.

If you would like to see this work evolve as a work in progress, you can view all the entries on my Blog at http://debbieflood.blogspot.com All my studio updates, news and recent works & exhibits are posted there.

  1. HI Debbie
    Nice watercolor. I am to slow in the mind to do watercolor. I love oils! Ha!

  2. Hi Sheila,Thank you.
    Well, I don't create these paintings too fast either! lol. It takes lots of layering of Glazes. Just like with Oils. I have to wait for the paper & paint to dry between the glazes, so that the colors beneath will glow.
    I suppose I paint my watercolors a lot like I paint my oils. I work in sections and I don't use a lot of water. I use more color.
    Have a great day!
