Edwin “Ed” Adamson
Edwin Adamson was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Since his youth, watercolor painting held a special interest in his life. His art studies in college were interrupted during the Korean War when he enlisted in the Navy. This resulted in a 26-year military career and very limited time to pursue his painting. Only after retirement was he able to return to his love of fine art by resuming his watercolor studies by enrolling in workshops with many prominent painters.
Essentially a realist he attempted to achieve the expression of nature in a true perspective. Adamson maintained a studio in Pebble Beach and was inspired by the scenic beauty of the Monterey Peninsula.
