Hi! I’m Madison Woods of Wild Ozark, and you’ve landed on my gallery page of earth tone paintings using my handmade watercolors.
Caption indicates availability or location if not in my possession. Email if you’re interested in originals or prints, or visit my displays at Kingston Square Arts in Kingston, Arkansas or War Eagle Mill (second floor) between Rogers and Clifty, Arkansas.
Handmade Watercolors, Foraged Earth Pigments

What’s on the Easel
You’ll find all of my work features 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.

I made bone black, from a cow vertebra that I charred inside a small tin inside the wood stove. Previously I’d used charred wood from hickory and oak. It has been a difficult paint to re-wet and it never reached the depth of black I wanted. It was also grainier than I liked. The charred …
