Recognized for both his passion of drawing and his wonderful use of color, Adamson's current body of work is described as observations of contemporary life.  "Crawfurd Adamson's paintings are primarily concerned with human figures and interaction between people. Adamson's vivid colors and abstract patterns allow the viewer's gaze to flow over the canvas, taking in the emotional strength of the content, color and composition."
