Irises along the upper Meramec is a splash of color thats turned a few heads.
Have a feeling many more folks will appreciate after your effort,Tom.

Stunning depth and color in Goldfinch & day lilies. Beautifully hypnotic.

American Bison

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted. Hope everyone had a great summer. I've wanted to do an american bison (we call them "buffalo") for a long time, but generally don't do a lot of mammals, mainly because of the limited color pallette and painting "fur" not conducive to my watercolor style. Anyway, here's my first attempt at a buffalo (watercolor, 11"x14"). Enjoy.

Love the bison! Delicate and brutal at the same time. Nice haircut, too :-)

Rainbow Trout

October has been such a beautiful month here in Missouri that I've spent very little time doing artwork. Finally, however, I did complete this watercolor of a "Rainbow Trout". This is one of my largest paintings at 22"x28". I hope you enjoy it.

Ringneck Pheasant

Here's my latest watercolor of a "Ringneck Pheasant". I've done several paintings of this wonderful bird but it's fantastic colors and markings are always difficult for me to capture. This is the largest painting of one I've done so far at 12"x24". Hope you enjoy it.

"Cardinals and Blackberries"

I just finished this watercolor of beautiful male and female northern cardinals among blackberries. Appropriately titled "Cardinals and Blackberries", this painting measures 20"x24". I hope you enjoy it. All of my latest artwork will be on display at the Missouri Department of Conservation Nature Center in Springfield, Missouri, from December 1st through 29th. If anyone reading this happens to be in the area, check it out. Thanks.

Leopard Frog

I barely finished this latest artwork before I pack up for my exhibition November 30 through December 29 at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center. This is a "Leopard Frog" watercolor measuring 16"x20". I was fortunate to sell my first rendering of this beautiful amphibian, so I felt I must paint him again. I hope you're pleased with the results. Thanks.

House Sparrow

Sorry it's been awhile since I posted anything, but now I'm back in the saddle and working on several projects. I just finished this quick study of a "House Sparrow" which may be preliminary to a much larger work. This one measures 11" x 14" and can be viewed along with all my other artwork at tombosewatercolors.blogspot.com . Enjoy.

Great new additions to your post! The magnolia and cardinal pair are so beautiful! And I really like how you done the pheasant, getting those beautiful colors without doing too much details!

Wild Turkeys

In my humble opinion, wild turkeys are one of the great wonders of the natural world, and Missouri is blessed with an abundance of these beautiful birds. Although they may have been introduced elsewhere, they remain uniquely American. Here's my tribute to these fantastic creatures. This original watercolor measures 22" x 28", so it's one of the largest I've done. Enjoy.
