I started a new Roman Piazzas series in 2019. This one depicts one of the most famous and theatrical places in Rome, and perhaps around the world. Piazza Navona as viewed from the left bars' sidewalk opposite Borromini's Church; depicts the typical italian style life during a warm spring day. Made in my studio after several sketches made in situ, on 300 gsm rough 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.
