STREET FOOD – PASTEL PAINTING

In Bangkok, as in every town and city, in south east Asia there are stalls offering fresh food and drink along the roadsides and in night markets. I thought I might explore some of the images I collected along the way. I like the spotlit figures surrounded by an almost abstract background. For me, there is a theatricality about them which adds to their draw.

This picture is developed from a number I took in Sathorn, a district in Bangkok, where we had just had a meal sat out on the pavement.
