I made this view through the Corso of modern Pompei - home of the ancient Roman ruins. The major shopping and commercial road of the city center is so colorful and busy. In the background, you can see the campanile of the Our Lady of Pompei Church, site of Catholic pilgrimages from people all around the world. Made on location in 2019 on rough, heavyweight watercolor with deckled edges.

Italian watercolorist Maximilian Damico paints primarily on location. He observes city sidewalks and intersections, looking for not the most famous scenes but the most interesting. With quick, lively brushstrokes, Maximilian captures the energy and mood of cities whether in the rain, gloom, or rush hour. The frenetic quality of city life doesn’t detract from the beauty of each scene. Maximilian’s gestural technique instead infuses liveliness in each artwork, a liveliness that makes being in a big city a never-ending thrill.
