Not much is known about Waterloo's training as an artist. He seems to have been self-educated. As a painter Waterloo is known only as the author of several unimportant paintings. As a printmaker, however, he produced 136 etchings which earned him a major reputation during lifetime. Waterloo catered to the demand from collectors who assembled albums with images of cities, towns as well as landscapes with forest ineriors with quite pools, woodlands with rugged banks and waterfalls, and cottages.
