PHILADELPHIA Watercolor City Blocks Map: ORIGINAL PAINTING (Commission)


Notify me when back in stock

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania Original Watercolor City Blocks Map.

With each block painted by hand, an original watercolor of Philly's iconic plan is just stunning on the wall of your office, business or home, or a wonderful wedding or anniversary gift to be treasured. Commission this map in a color of your choice. I will contact you soon after your purchase of this commission.

With this commission, you are also entitled to purchase up to ten prints of your piece at half cost! Give prints as gifts to friends and family. Keep a print for yourself if the original is a gift. Win-win.

I love the complexity and patterns of city plans! It's fascinating to roam with your eye over the different grids, to notice how they may or may not reflect the topography, to consider which came first and later. Explore Philadelphia's iconic plan with your eyes! Centered on the original William Penn plan, including City Hall and the first four squares, Rittenhouse, Logan, Washington and Franklin, the map stretches north to Jefferson Street and south to about Morris Street. The city center is cradled between the great Delaware River with its docks and the scenic Schuykill. The map is rotated to show off Penn's grid in straight parallel and perpendicular streets and squares.

I will paint Your Philadelphia Map in a color of your choice. Tell me what color this special place conjures for you, or choose a color from the menu.

Please allow 4 - 6 weeks for completion.
