This is a view over the fountain of Neptune ( Fontana del Nettuno) in Piazza della Signoria in Florence. The idea was to be as close to the basin of the fountain where stands, in a mannerist style, reclining bronze river gods and laughing satyrs, as well as the marble pedestal where the sea god stands. This piece was painted on location.

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.
