The three sisters wear the same dress but in their individual colours. These colours are set, but I will leave the flexible colours until much nearer the end of the painting, and I can use a mix of colours to balance the picture as a whole.

The Royal (looking) Crest above the door was originally installed by the Shoemaker called Neals, that had the shop before Edward Reeves. It still exists, inside the building. The colours however, are imagined!
Tom Reeves is still running the family photographers, he is the great grandson of Edward.
I pictured Tom up in the upstairs window, having a go with his first camera.

Edward Reeves Photographer at the top is, as you can see, just beneath the castle, and a fourth generation photographer working in the same building.
How many people have walked through those doors!
The second image is the Market Porter at Borough Market, in Southwark. There is a wonderful busy buzzy atmosphere at Borough Market, and the pub too. Actually, the area has been used in lots of films, including Harry Potter. will have to put a reference in there!...
