Artist's Description

A second digital abstraction of a photograph I took, of the base of the Ladywell Play Tower (The Old Ladywell Baths), Lewisham. Legend has it, that during wartime, when makeup was scarce, local girls, queing up to go into the baths, used to use coins, to grind holes in the red brick at the base of this tower, and use this as a kind of improvised lipstick! (more likely, it was used as a sort of rouge!). The original image shown below, from which LIpstick 2 was made, using Photoshop Elements 7, was taken with a Canon 1Ds Mk 1 fitted with a Canon EF 24 – 105mm F4L IS USM lens.
