Originally from Kotovsk, Russia, and now based in Rome, Igor Sava is a watercolor painter who focuses on cityscapes in his adopted country.
Sava’s approach combines deft control of edges with the visual charm of freely mixed washes. His architectural subjects carry a feeling of atmosphere and light, as well as the textures of their materials.
On his website, you will find a gallery of paintings, as well as smaller galleries of watercolor figure sketches and imaginative subjects.
There is a brief YouTube video of Sava painting at the 2016 International Watercolor Society Biennial.

Just chipping in with a watercolour artist I happened upon..his name is Karl Martens. A bit of a showman, a bit full of himself, but paints birds in an extraordinary way. You can find him on Google or youtube. You may already know of him…if so my apologies !
Always look forward to your new discoveries.
I really like his work, Charley! Thanks for the introduction!
Charley, another great post. I was wondering if it bothers anyone else that the buildings are not level- particulary in the the 3rd image down?
I took is as having a casual, sketch-like quality, but you’re right, the perspective does not appear to be accurate.
