Contemporary Fine Art of Santa Barbara

~ James Paul Brown ~ About

James-Paul Brown blends the broad brushwork and vibrant colors of Van Gogh with the strokes and pastel shades of Monet to produce enchanting, passionate masterpieces. With his history as a painter, radio entrepreneur, wine connoisseur, traveler, and reciter of poetry, his life resembles his colorful palette, capturing the beauty of adventure of the human experience. His paintings are windows into an enchanted world blending energy, color and romance, as well as his favorite cities and landscapes. Over thirty two years ago, Dominique Sennelier wrote a letter to James-Paul comparing his paintings to the great French Fauve artist Albert Marquet. A true romantic, Brown adds elements of fantasy, music and mermaids, flowers and fairies to his lyric paintings. His paintings begin with a pencil under-drawing. This linear plan sets the format of the general composition. Color is then added to enrich, flesh-out and give life to the initial sketch. These vibrant colors are applied with a variety of strokes that vary from short daubs to long threads of paint. The resulting texture of color appears like a rich tapestry.
