These two paintings were developed from b/w photos. The first painting ‘Under Waterloo Bridge’ London was based on a photo taken with a new/old M2 Leica Camera, that I had recently acquired in 2001.
The shot was taken from the top of Waterloo Bridge looking downwards to the paved walkway below.
It had been raining and the paved slabs below were reflecting the light from puddles.
The shot was under exposed due to a faulty light meter, or my inability to use it!
