Brad Holland

I've recently been given a new brief that requires me to look at the use of colour as a method to communicate with. After doing a bit of web browsing I went back to my notes and discovered Brad Holland; an American self-taught artist most famous for his contributions to such magazines as 'Playboy' and 'The New Yorker' among other titles.

I particularly loved the soft warm tones that seem to 'pop' out of his work adding further animation or visual interest to an already cleverly composed image. His style of painting also seems to really highlight the textures and tones of his subjects giving them a definitive sense of character.
