Brush Color Different from Color Picked?

Hey all! This hasn't happened before, so I'm not sure what might be going on. I'm using CS3. I was drawing with the paint brush and everything was fine. Then at some point, when I went to draw again, the color the brush was drawing was like a dark, blush sort of gray even though the actual color I have set as my foreground is red.

I used the eyedropper with the brush to pick up the color again and started painting and again, it wasn't painting the color in the foreground, just that weird dark color. Not sure what I pressed to make that happen, I might have hit something while I was moving around by accident, but I was wondering if anyone has any tips to get the brush to paint as the color actually is in the foreground?

Hmm. It just kicked back to the right color on its own lol Well, any tips on what might have made that happen are still appreciated.

Could you be using a brush set to jitter from background to foreground? You can check the settings of the brush in the Brush palette > Color dynamics.
