Storytelling Painter Allows His Animals to Appear with Spontaneous Brush Strokes

Using a completely blank canvas, painter Adam S. Doyle has the innate ability to create magical, lifelike images. With the use of simplified, visible brushstrokes, Doyle organically paints vivid creatures such as howling wolves, birds in flight, and stoic foxes. Each captivating monochromatic subject is designed without initial planning or sketching. Instead, the incredible painter allows his work to happen naturally, evolving from the moment his paintbrush touches down upon his canvas.

Most importantly, Doyle sees his artwork as a form of storytelling, making a point to breathe life into his subjects. “My work always begins with a love for the magic of creation – the blank surface transformed into a living thing or another world. This act has been with mankind forever and yet never ceases to be awe-inspiring. I always want my marks to be visible, to keep this sense of wonder present. I'm committed to making images that speak truth to power, that provide space to breathe, and that use simple forms to reveal and make accessible the heart of stories,” states the skilled painter.
