This bobwhite quail painting features 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. 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 😀

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 my North American Game Bird project.
North American Game Birds
“A Curious Pair” is the first in a series of north American game birds. I’ll do a few more of the quail and then move on to other favorite game birds, like wild Turkeys, Woodcock, Pheasants, and Dove.
Prints are available.
