PORTLAND Oregon Watercolor City Blocks Map: PRINT (Blues Greens Greys)


Notify me when back in stock


Lush gardens and Grey skies, Big industry and Small handcraft, Idiosyncratic and Independent, Entrepreneurs on every corner, Bikes on every block, Books and Boots. I love this city! You, too? Awesome.

Portland's rigid block patterns mesh with sinuous roads that wind up the hills. Cool gems of urban planning like Ladd's Addition make of the plan a quilt. This city plan is one for long looks - so much variety and intricacy! The map-drawing centers on the Willamette River, including Portland's city center and business district, the "Heights" to the west and Washington Park. The neighborhoods of East Portland, Hollywood, Ladd's Addition, Irvington, Alberta Street and Northeast Portland, among others fill the other half of the canvas. The University of Portland campus sits in the top left corner / northwest.

This is a PRINT of my original watercolor painting in variegated tones of blue, green and grey.

Epson archival coated paper / Epson Professional high-quality inkjet printer / Archival inks

Color may be slightly different on the print than in photos.

Please contact me for larger print sizes.

8" x 10", 11" x 14" and 16" x 20" are the best print sizes to purchase if you'd like to find a frame "off the shelf" instead of custom framing. Prints 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!

Original drawing/painting. Print is signed & dated by me, on back.

Unlimited quantities & bulk pricing available. Please ask!
