Residing in Suffolk, at Potash Farm, Evans was largely self-sufficient growing his own vegetables and flowers which were often the subject of his paintings.  Flower Garden (1981); The Allotment (1986)Crown Imperial (88)Geraniums (81-2). Gladioli, Daffodils (86); Irises;  Apples (86); Pumpkins (86);The Marrow Family; Cabbages



His work was  naturally compared to Burra and Vaughan but it was also noted that he worked  in the tradition of Palmer and  Lear. His association with the Norfolk landscape was regularly commented upon as was his  humourous social commentary) which was compared to that of Hogarth and Lowry. The sense of unease that permeates even the gayest of his watercolours was often noted.   

The size and technical brilliance of Evans watercolours were qualities frequently commented on by critics of the time.
