Noud Adams is a modern realist. He mainly paints still lifes, in a clear, light realistic style in which the play of light and color is an important motif. Among other things, he paints objects of use and consumption. It is precisely these objects that can be beautifully captured in thin layers of oil paint. The objects used for the still life are painted life-size, so these objects determine the size of the painting. The combination of these aspects in the still life, together radiate a soothing image.
