Handmade Paint

My tonalist underpainting for Kings River in Autumn.

Kings River in Autumn | Ozark pigments in oil

Today (Thursday 2/2/23), I started working over the underpainting I’d previously done for Kings River in Autumn. If you’d like to follow along, I’ll post my update pictures with each day’s work. It might need to dry a few days now, though. I’ll go back to working on one of the other seasons’ scene while …

Provenance of a Paint

Most of my paints begin with a rock. Sometimes I remember to record the process it goes through from rock to paint, and sometimes the process isn’t quick. This is the story of a paint made from a reddish sandstone found here at Wild Ozark. It’s the provenance of Number 2021-01. I’m still working with …

The New ‘Shop Wild Ozark’ Website

The new Shop Wild Ozark URL is https://shop.wildozark.com/ I’ve finally gotten most of the art, prints, notecards, and pigment products moved over to the new Shop Wild Ozark location.

Flora and Fauna, and Sacred Art

Sacred Art

These are the ways my muse speaks to me. The messages are given through the flora and fauna of my habitat, and I (try to) pass it along to you in the form of art. This task is something I consider to be sacred. Everything about the act of doing it, from gathering the rocks to the destruction and subsequent re-creation into usable paints, to the transference of an idea into reality on paper… it all is part of a sacred art.

The lineup of pigments we'll use in the handmade watercolor workshop in Fayetteville, AR next week.

Presenting … A Rainbow of Ozark Pigments

Skip right to the discussion for your workshop: email me at madison@wildozark.com. I’ll bring my stash of Ozark pigments and rocks, or we can go foraging on site at your location. Plus, I’ll bring all the materials needed to make art with local colors! I’m gathering my supplies and gearing up to do workshops featuring …
