This is Chioggia, also known as The Little Venice, a small fishing port and a coastal town with canals and small alleys, south of Venice. In the background, there is the medieval bell tower of the church of St. Andrea and the Palazzo Comunale. I painted this in the studio after sketches made in situ on 300gm watercolor paper with deckled edges.

Getting to Know Maximilian

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.
