Sophie Adair is a young British talent currently residing in France whose paintings have been featured in solo exhibitions nationally. Working primarily in oil paints, Adair creates impressionist style seascapes to explore the hidden beauty of water and its reflections. Her work is characterized by great technical detail in the rendering of waves and sea foam, prioritizing the delicate light on the ocean surface.
For the past few years I have been exploring seascapes, in particular the lighting and shadows within them. It started for me as a challenge; water was the subject I found most difficult to paint and so this spurred me on. I wanted to perfect my skill although I found whilst searching for perfection I enjoyed the chaos within seascapes more. My work has slowly evolved from painting the sea as a subject to painting it as a person, each painting is personified and named after women, whether they’re a historical figure or simply a strong woman who altered my life in some way. My paintings include stormy skies and rocky shore lines and within each I try to portray the subtle lighting, tones and mood of each seascape creating the emotions I feel are present within the scene.
Ways you can get your hands on a seascape of your own....
We are in awe! Can’t believe I get to wake up to this beautiful work of art. You are an incredible artist.
Sophie, THANK YOU again for working with me! The entire experience was so pleasant, thanks to your patience, flexibility and follow-through.
Even more beautiful in person. I was shocked at not only the detail in the art work but at the amazing detail she took in packing the piece to make sure it arrived undamaged. Sophie even went as far to send a thank you note with some suggestions on a frame that would complement her piece as well as some professional framers in my location. The thank you note was a picture of one of her paintings and I also had that framed as it was too beautiful to throw out. Absolutely amazing artist .. I consider my self to be a very lucky person to be able to share my home with one of her pieces.
Sophie's work is phenomenal. The mood she can create in her pieces is palpable. The attention to detail is second to none, including the beautiful packaging and follow up service. When you buy from Sophie you're not just buying art but investing in a friend.
I have purchased three pieces now - a watercolor for my mom as a gift, a print, and an original painting. No matter what medium Sophie is working with, the results are always stunning! I have a feeling my house will be covered in her art over the years.
I have several pieces made by Sophie. Her paintings are stunning and detailed. Sophie is great at capturing emotions such as moodiness and tranquility in her paintings. Her prints are also of amazing quality, you can see the brush strokes! Great service as well. Cannot recommend Sophie enough!
