ALBANY Urban Fabrics City Map: PRINT


Notify me when back in stock

ALBANY, New York.

The Map area centers on Downtown, Washington Park, Lincoln Park and the State Capitol on the west side of the Hudson River, extending west to the University at Albany. Renssalear and the surrounding neighborhood are also included, on the east side of the river.

This is a PRINT. My hand-drawn map lines are turned white over my "Urban Fabric” painting - a layering of many hand-painted and drawn marks in watercolor, handmade pigment and ink. The "Urban Fabrics" Print Collection features 30+ Cities in 6 Color ways, featuring my paintings:

COAL: Striking black and white brush marks and ink lines, with brown ochre pigment.

ROCK: Neutral tones of beige and grey with a touch of blush.

EARTH: Earthy pinks, gold, rich warm browns in brush strokes with graphite marks.

RIVER: Moody blue-greens with graphite and my handmade ochre pigment.

WAVES: Deep watery blues with wavy graphite lines.

GRASS: Wispy strokes evoke blades of grass, with pink and gold interwoven.

Prints available in multiple sizes as well as three paper options:

Matte Coated Archival - Easily fits into frame of same dimensions, no mat needed.

Textured Watercolor Paper, straight cut edge - Easily fits into frame of same dimensions, no mat needed.

Textured Watercolor Paper, deckled edge - Looks great float-mounted in frame! (Not available in 17” x 20”)

Epson archival papers / 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. 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, no title. 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 work. Print is signed & dated by me, on back.

Unlimited quantities & bulk pricing available. Please ask!
