Welcome to my online portfolio. All of my paintings are created using light-fast earth pigments that I gather and process in Madison county, Arkansas. For illustrations that require closer to reality colors, I use Prismacolor and Winsor & Newton pencils. Click here to go to the drawings.

Paintings and drawings are arranged in order from most recent to oldest. Contact me at madison@wildozark.com for questions or inquiries.

Great Horned Owl painting by Madison Woods

Ancient Earth Wisdom

This great horned owl perched on an old cedar branch is painted in earth pigments foraged from right here around my home in Madison county, Arkansas. The colors are from various stones (red sandstone, russet sandstone, shale, bitumen, green sandstone, and yellow limonite). The deep black is carbon black made from our chimney soot.

The colors are all light-fast. 8 x 12″, on Arches watercolor paper.
