WASHINGTON DC Watercolor City Blocks Map: ORIGINAL PAINTING (Commission)


Notify me when back in stock

Original Watercolor City Blocks Map of WASHINGTON DC, Custom Commission.

With each block painted by hand, an original watercolor of Washington DC's unique 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 density of historic cities! It's fascinating to roam with your eye over the streets of our Nation's Capital, abstracted into a figure/ground, or block, plan. Your Watercolor City Plan of Washington DC is created to accentuate the iconic shape of the District boundaries. The blocks in Rosslyn VA, Silver Spring and Takoma Park MD that fall outside the District bounds will be rendered in lighter tones than those within the bounds.

I will paint Your 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 5 - 7 weeks to complete Your Watercolor Map. Pay in Installments: I'm happy to accept an initial fee to begin work of 50% of the total fee with balance due at completion of your Original Watercolor Map. Just let me know!

Original Watercolor on thick 140gsm cold press professional grade watercolor paper, signed & dated by me on front, bottom.

Paper size: 22" x 22" with about a 1 inch border.

{painting will be copyright © Kirsten Sparenborg and I will make and sell prints of this piece.}
