View through the crowded Via San Gregorio Armeno in Naples, a historic street known for its nativity scene makers, or "Presepe." The small, tight street has hundred of shops and nativity workshops. People walk the umbrella-lined street. Dramatic afternoon shadows fall on the buildings and sidewalk. Painted in the studio from sketches done on location; on heavyweight watercolor paper with deckled edges and a white border.

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.
