ALEXANDRIA Virginia Watercolor Map + Sketch: PRINT


Notify me when back in stock


This is a PRINT of my Watercolor Wash Map-drawing in tones of weathered copper - blue-greens, beige, charcoal grey.

My architectural sketch features the 100 Block of Prince Street.

Alexandria harbors the early nineteenth century in its narrow rowhomes and streets of brick and welcomes time travelers. Ship Captains purportedly built homes at the 100 Block of Prince Street in Alexandria Virginia. "Captain's Row" still feels like the early 1800s, with its rough cobblestone street tumbling down toward the Potomac River where the tall ships docked. The brick rowhomes and their dormers and chimneys rise like random organ pipes, roughly following the slope. The former Bank of the Old Dominion (occupied by the Union Army during the Civil War) is now the Athenaeum, a place for the arts. A perfect example of a Classical Revival temple, the Athenaeum is like a hinge, anchoring Captain's Row at the crest of the hill.

8" x 10", 11" x 14" are the best print sizes to purchase if you'd like to find a frame "off the shelf" instead of custom framing. Print have a border so no mat is required - just pop it in the frame of the same size and hang!If you'd prefer a square print, just purchase the size that matches the width you'd like, leave a note at checkout to make it square and I will make it square! If my print widths available in menu do not match your preference, send me a note with an alternate size. I can print from 5" x 5" to 17" x 17" - Thanks!
