San Diego, CA
Brian Meyer was born in San Diego in 1971. He has always been drawn to art, from doodling drawings to painting, and always felt that was what he was made for. Joined the Foothills Art Association, and studies the works of Degas, really got into Pastels. He joined the army upon graduating High School and spent 3 years, including "Desert Storm" as part of HHC 16th CSG Support Group as a combat signaler ( phones and radio communications ). Even painted some Nose art on some British Tanks for a case of British MRE's. Got to see a bit of the world, from Saudi Arabia to Germany and France.
After the Army he got married and had two amazing kids and got away from art for a long time. But the yearning never really left and recently he decided to really focus on restoring his rusty art muscles. Did Graphic Design, Prepress Production, and Color Correction Work, and some computer programming.
His focus now is on Watercolor, and has been studying on the WetCanvas.com forum, by going to Paint Outs hosted by the San Diego Watercolor Society, and just making sure he paints every day. He works with a limited palette of neutralizing complements, with an emphasis on tone. Plein air paintings of scenic spots in San Diego, and live figure drawing at the Museum of the Living Artist. He is just getting started.
