SEATTLE, Washington Original Watercolor City Blocks Map. 
With each block painted by hand, an original watercolor of Seattle's unique city 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 by email soon after your purchase of this commission. Please allow 6-10 weeks for completion.

I love the complexity and density of historic cities! It's fascinating to roam with your eye over the neighborhoods of Seattle, abstracted into a figure/ground, or block, plan. The way all the different grids reconcile themselves to each other and to the coastline and all the bodies of water that carve around and through the city. This map includes Seattle between Elliott Bay and Lake Washington, bounded by the southern tip of Green Lake on the north and on the south, West Seattle golf course and Beacon Hill. (Please write me for more exact boundaries -- or to commission a Seattle Watercolor Map with different boundaries.)
