This is a classical Venice waterfront view over St. Mark's Basin with Santa Maria della Salute's Dome in the background, and the busy Canal Grande in front with gondolas and boats moored by the pier. This is the view from Riva degli Schiavoni. This watercolor was painted in the studio after several plein air sketches. The piece is 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.
