About Michael Beckett

Hi… thanks for visiting.

My name is Michael Beckett. I live in Calgary Alberta Canada.

I’ve always been interested in art but never followed up as a career as I’m partially red-green color blind. In 2004, I decided to take the plunge anyway and working with the book ‘Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain’ by Betty Edwards, taught myself to draw.

As I progressed, I moved from black and white (graphite and charcoal) to earth tones (conte) to limited color (mainly colored conte).

I also threw some figure drawing from life into the mix. There I learned to work quickly. No more lolly gagging… get the drawing on paper before the time is up!

In the last year or two, I’ve been learning to handle a paint brush (some watercolor, but mostly acrylic), and ultimately learn to manage color with limited color vision.

You may notice looking through my gallery that I cover a lot of different subject matter (although there are a few tendencies). I’ve always had a lot of different interests… I want to paint everything at least once before my time here is done!

Much of the time, It’s not so much the subject matter that interests me, but other elements… maybe its the light… or a story … or just a feeling … and I try to portray it in my work. I also try to work quickly… let those brush strokes sing!

I’m proud of the journey I’ve taken, and my artistic accomplishments, and excited to continue traveling this road. I never thought I would be able to create art like I have, and have learned a lot about myself in the process. Never say ‘never’!

Mike
