Dwayne Adams is a watercolor artist residing in Kailua, Hawaii. After practicing as a landscape architect for 40 years, Dwayne’s rendering talents used in public settings led him to seek his passion; watercolor. His love of watercolor stems from his understanding of watercolor as a “live” media. While other two-dimensional media allow for deliberation and correction, watercolor breathes life to the paper the instant it is placed on paper. The movement of water and color creates drama that unfolds as a painting progresses. That’s where the magic of watercolor lives.
Dwayne paints primarily plein air, but also paints in his Kailua studio for those paintings that lend themselves to a more studied approach. While most of his paintings tend to be landscapes of Hawaii or other places he and his wife Sandy have traveled, he prefers urban settings as well as portraiture.
Dwayne’s paintings are for sell at adams-art.com. He also paints for commissions.
Dwayne teaches watercolor for entry and intermediate level students. He has taught in the Phoenix, Arizona area and teaches regularly at the Downtown Art Center in Honolulu.
Dwayne is a member of the Hawaii Watercolor Society, was a Signature Member of the Alaska Watercolor Society, and has won awards in both Hawaii and Alaska, as has been selected for entry in shows in Colorado.
