Tony Bianco Profile
   

Oil | Acrylic

I am so luck to live in the picturesque seaside town of Skerries, just north of Dublin, Ireland. On my daily dog walks it never ceases to amaze me how the light changes everything. Inspiration is everywhere.

I paint most days, either a small still life painted in my studio or a plein air study of the two magnificent beaches or harbour, right on my doorstep.

Everything is captured in the spontaneous movement of the palette knife as it meets the canvas with rich buttery oil paint.

I like to work in the alla prima style as much as possible, trying to capture the magic of the subject in an expressive way, characterised by vigorous thick slashes of colour and highlights of heavy impasto paint and building more detail as the painting progresses.
