An original work by Madison Woods. A bald eagle painting featuring Ozark pigments and handmade watercolors.

Availability: Only 1 left in stock

This bald eagle painting features all light-fast pigments I collected by hand in the Ozarks of northwest Arkansas. After grinding the rocks to create a pigment, I process it with a binder to make my handmade watercolors. I only use the pigments I’ve collected myself for my artwork. The colors in this painting are all light-fast. My paints are called “Paleo Paints” because I make them in the nearly the same way they were made when cave men (or women!) were painting on the walls 😀

Photographer’s credit: I used a reference pic by Terry Stanfill, the official photographer for SWEPCO’s Eagle Watch Trail in NW Arkansas.

Collectible Earthy Paintings

My watercolor works always feature handmade watercolors. By using only my Wild Ozark Paleo Paints, my palette is limited to the colors of nature. My paintings will always be earthy and natural. No matter what the subject or style, you will instantly recognize it as my work.

This painting is part of the Birds of Prey project. You can see the other raptor paintings that I’ve done so far by visiting the page for the project:

Ozark Birds of Prey

Although I’m focused specifically on painting the raptors that visit, live in, or travel through the Ozarks, most of these species are familiar sights throughout North America.

This bald eagle painting is one of possibly two in a series of bald eagles.

Prints are available.
