D’Amico is a Scenic Detailed Colorist that works primarily with pen and ink, liquid acrylic, water color and some colored pencil. His inspiration for his drawings comes from his own Amateur Photography, identifying as a mix between a Realist and a Expressionist in his interpretations of scenic displays. D’Amico seeks to use colors that he feel dictates the mood of a picture more than its realism and layers them on top of each other until he feels that they have reached their highest potential.
“My work is very unique in that it was develop by me over the past 15 years by using a mixture of acrylics, inks and water colors on paper and exploiting how they both blend and repel each other. A dried acrylic does not draw in the color of some inks and some inks when dried allows watercolor to flow in the open spaces of paper without causing the ink to smear.”
Using these mediums, D’Amico found a way that allows each to be different and unique to its own form, and yet blend together with the other mediums to bring about a real density of color.
