Accepted by the Famous Artists School at age 13, Loren D. Adams, Jr. rejected their correspondence courses when he discovered Norman Rockwell would not be training him, but kept their instructional books and taught himself to draw and paint while also studying the work of other artists. In his love of majestic scenes infused with rich color and ambient light designed for emotional impact, he was influenced by the Hudson River School artists, painting layer upon layer of color in a smooth brush technique that disguises the hand of the painter to focus attention on the subject.
