The work within these pages offer the viewer a comprehensive and diverse selection of artistic styles by artist P. Anthony Visco. From the looseness of a quick wet-on-wet watercolor to the realistic detail derived from working more tightly using a wide variety of mediums, each painting is designed to hold your attention. You could consider my paintings having a variety of dimensions including but not limited to being dramatic, dynamic, moody, colorful, textural, subtle, inspirational, creative, bold, and beautiful. No matter what genre you seek, you owe it to yourself to view the body of work within these pages.
As an illustrator and designer, my paintings reflect the knowledge and wisdom learned through a lifetime of working in the world of creative design. Inspiration for these pieces is heavily rooted in favorite New England scenes and abandoned objects found in unusual settings. As a recipient of many juried art show awards including First Place in drawing, pastel and watercolor, I believe my primary objective is to insure that my work inspires you...if I can stimulate your senses through my work...then you've made my art a success.
