Six colors in this introductory collection from Wild Ozark! All of our hand-made watercolor paints are created from sustainably wildcrafted rocks, soils, clay, or other natural materials. All colors are light-fast and permanent. Whenever I use a pigment that is not light-fast, it will be noted as such in the description. All of these in Collection No. 1 are earth pigments and light-fast.
- Char (black)
- Creek Shale (gray)
- Waterfall Shale (muddy yellow)
- Landslide (cleaner yellow)
- Intoxicating (red-brown)
- Nirvana (orange-brown)
This is a palette that ranges in earthy browns, grays, yellows, and black. It is the same palette I used to create my falcon paintings, which can be seen here.
All of my colors are produced in small batches. While I may be able to get close to the same shade again in the future, there is no guarantee of reproducibility in any of them. When the same color is produced in a subsequent batch, it will receive a new batch number. For example, the next time I make Nirvana, it will be called Nirvana (2). This will allow the artist buying replacement colors for favorite palettes to understand there may be small variation between the two and make conscious allowances for that difference in their work.
About Wild Ozark
Wild Ozark is a nature farm. Mostly we grow rocks. I use those rocks and some of the herbs to make earth pigments and watercolor paints. We also grow native clay that I use for paint and various other things. And then there are the trees. We grow lots of trees. My husband uses some for his woodworking and some for our Burnt Kettle Shagbark Hickory Syrup, but for the most part they stand around creating good air, shade, & habitat for the ginseng nursery.

About the voice behind this blog, Madison Woods
I'm a creative old soul living way off the beaten path with my husband in the wild Ozark Mountains. You can find my art on display and for sale at the Kingston Square Arts shop in Kingston, Arkansas. It's a tiny little town and a bit off the path to anywhere at all, but a wonderful ride out to a most beautiful part of our state. Besides homesteading, growing plants & making arts & crafty things, I write books and stories. My rural fantasy fiction, written under the pen name, Ima Erthwitch
, usually takes place in a much altered Ozarks.
