10 Paintings that made me want to paint.

As a young girl I spent hours drawing black and white portraits in pencil and charcoal. It was not until I took Art History in college, that I caught the 'painting bug.' These 10 paintings were the first I grabbed onto and inspired me to pick up a brush and add some colour to my palette. These painters, and my painting instructor, pushed me off the edge into the depths of paint and a life viewed in colour.
