Tony Bianco Profile
   

Oil | Pastel | Charcoal

The New England coast has been the main source of inspiration for my paintings. 

I am endlessly intrigued by the shapes of the ever-changing marshes and sand dunes which vary between the seasons.

I love to carve out the different patterns that nature creates in land and sky. 

I primarily work in pastel, oil paints and charcoal. 

I use a similar technique in my pastel and oil paintings; using many layers to build up visual texture. 

Although I love both mediums, pastel is still my favorite due to its tactile quality, pure color and spontaneity of use.
