Peter Evans

By tony64  
Good evening everyone, and welcome to a new week and a new theme for the week. This week I am looking at market traders at Londons renowned antique market - Portobello Road Market.

Now this man is NOT Santa Claus! But Peter Evans an (apparently) well renowned Royal Academician! He was very kind to pose for pictures for me and even then I cut his hand off! He then kept me for another half an hour chatting! I think he was glad for someone to talk to!
Anyway, a nice chap, I hope you like his picture!
V2 available in BW.

He has lots of character. What about a tighter crop of his face? Might give you another image out of this set.
Best, Bill

One man and his environment. Pity about the hand but I love the wonky picture on the wall, it sets the scene.

The colour works best for me as the man stands out better from the background. I love all those little bits and pieces jumbled together. From being an RA to market stall holder selling little bottles and pots - what an interesting man.

I think a head and shoulders crop would eliminate the hand problem, yet show the man with his surroundings. The color version strikes me on this one.

Great character image within his market surroundings. It might be worth trying the head and shoulders crop, but I really enjoy this portrait.
