Frames from Deptford Market (London)
Because I'm in Bogotá now, I wanted to make some paintings about spaces I miss from London. I started by selecting some pictures I took over the past two years. Then I made them black and white and printed them so I could work mixing techniques on paper.
By making them black and white I would guess the shades of colour and textures they use to have, painting with acrylic and pastel pencils the tones I could remember. I'm quite pleased with the melancholic and almost eerie atmosphere they turned out to have, I think, true to its very essence of memories.
And the final result...they're hanging in my room!
