Earth Tone Paintings by Madison Woods

All of my work begins with foraging for pigments so I can make my paint. I first started out making watercolor paints, but have recently (as of Sept. 2022) began making oil paints. The oil captures the rich tones so much better and I’m excited to embark upon the journey to build a relationship with this medium. Earth tone paintings of nature, made from nature- Literally!

Earth tones from the Ozarks

You’ll find all of my painting works feature earth tone colors. I use mostly pigments found right here at Wild Ozark. Most of them came from around the creek sides or along the driveway. Our property is 160 acres deep in the heart of the Ozarks of northwest Arkansas. We have a surprisingly large range of natural pigments!

From time to time I use my Prismacolor pencils to create works in brighter colors. Usually this is for a publication that requires it.

If you see any paintings here you like, just email me about them if there is no link to a listing or you’d rather skip the hassle of trying to find out whether it’s for sale or not. I can have prints made of any of them. Not all of the originals are available. My email address is
