    I think you can accomplish this using GetObject.

    Code:
    COLORREF GetBrushColor( HBRUSH hBrush ) {
      COLORREF color = 0 ;
      LOGBRUSH logBrush ;
      if ( GetObject( hBrush, sizeof(LOGBRUSH), &logBrush ) ) {
        color = logBrush.lbColor ;
      }
      return color ;
    }
    
    COLORREF GetPenColor( HPEN hPen ) {
      COLORREF color = 0 ;
      LOGPEN logPen ;
      if ( GetObject( hPen, sizeof(LOGPEN), &logPen ) ) {
        color = logPen.lopnColor ;
      }
      return color ;
    }
