Earth Tone Paintings by Madison Woods

A photo of Madison Woods, artist, author, and Paleo Paint maker.

Hi! I’m Madison Woods of Wild Ozark, and you’ve landed on my gallery page. I hope you enjoy these earth tone paintings.

Handmade Watercolors, Foraged Earth Pigments

All of my work begins with foraging for pigments and making the paint. I prefer to use local pigments but collect the ‘colors of a place’ anywhere I go. If I use something other than Ozark pigments, it is noted in the captions.

What’s on the Easel

"Brahman Baby", in bone black, creek shale, and willow black. You can see the whole progression either by following me on Instagram or going to the post at my Wild Ozark site.

2019

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. Our property is 160 acres deep in the heart of the Ozarks of northwest Arkansas. We have a surprisingly large range of natural pigments!

This is where I’ll post about my various pigment experiments, finished colors, and sets for sale.

Wild Waterfall Slate

This rock lives near the waterfall and because of the various hues of colors I saw in it, became one of my first few sets of paints. I called it “Waterfall Shale”. I think it’s really slate, though.

A Paint-Making Experiment with Murdoch’s Mystery Rock

A thoughtful person by the last name of Murdoch, who happens also to know a bit of geology, enjoyed my display over at Kingston Square Arts, bought a print, and then came back and left me a box of rocks. And today I embarked on a paint-making experiment with one of those rocks. It is …

Bone Black

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 …
