Oil on Canvas
Most of Adam’s work overtime is oil on canvas. For the most part, he builds his canvasses to vary in size and orientation to fit the composition and theme.
Oil on Panel
Oil paintings on masonite panels with wooden frames, present multiple images within a single piece. In this approach, a varying color pallet, size, shape, and orientation heightens the visual and thematic aspects of these pieces.
Much of Adam’s work on paper is done to be a study for a larger piece. His process on paper is to paint quickly, which tends to give the paintings a fresh quality and a sense of energy.
