A Slow Race – Paintings by Lisa Adams

Lisa Adams is a self-taught realist painter from Queensland, Australia. She paints for six hours a day, six days a week. Even at that pace, it takes her months to finish a single piece. She averages three to five paintings per year. Lisa begins with a crystal clear mental picture of the painting which she then tries to transfer onto the canvas. She utilizes detailed photographic references, usually her own, or the ones taken by her husband, photographer Kim Guthrie. She said: “I never paint from just one photograph, it sometimes takes hundreds of separate sources."
