MASSIMILIANO LOCCO


Massimiliano Locco lives and works in Rome. He has run his own  painting school in Rome for many years. Massimiliano travels all over the world to exhibit and is one of the key tutors in the annual "Watercolour Convention" in Fabriano each year.


He says about himself: "I approach watercolour painting following the works of Ettore Roesler Franz, (Roman watercolourist of the 19th century) , and John Singer Sargent.  My style often changes, I'm constantly exploring the medium. Watercolour offers endless possibilities and is a continuous research.   I prefer to paint in plein air.  My city, Rome, offers remarkable views to paint, urban and rural scenes.  I also love painting in coastal areas such as Sperlonga which has beautiful views of the old town, a fishing village, rocks and sea.  With plein air you are obliged to be more instinctive and immediate and leads to amazing results".

Massimiliano has won many prizes for his work internationally and in Italy itself.
