Color Addict


About two years ago, I started using colored pencils to doodle. At the time, I had no intention of painting; I only scribbled a bit with pencils.

Then about a year ago, I decided to paint a Christmas card for family and friends. I hadn't tried watercolor painting since in high school. As an effort, it turned out okay. I had no clue what I was doing, but I was intrigued. I decided that I could go a bit further. More painting, lots of book purchases to study a bit of art history and painting methods. And then about two months ago, I took an acrylics class and got hooked on color.

Here's a thumbnail history of my art over the past two years time, in a rough chronological order. I moved from sketchy, pale doodling to vibrant color.

Color is addictive.

I'll say.

That's quite a collection. Nice work, Brent. :)

I'm not trying to be contrary, because I love your paintings too, but seeing all the line drawings in one spot reminded me of how really good you are at catching characteristics. So love the color all you want to, and don't quit creating your paintings for they are things of beauty--- just please please don't stop doodling! (the one of you dancing cracks me up!)
