The Caricaturist

By TrevBatWCC    
York's always a good place to go for a day out, especially at Bank Holidays, when there are lots of things going off to see and do.
Here at the top corner of King's Square (which is actually triangular!), I came across this caricaturist drawing this young lady's portrait. Thought it worked better in mono; the colours, and in particular all those balloons in the background, are rather distracting from the main subject. The version is the original colour shot.
Considering I rarely photograph and show flower images, I'm amazed at how well yesterday's upload was received - perhaps I should do more! 🌷 And it's also many thanks to Ian (dales), Robert (BobbyMS), Patty (pentaxpatty) and Arne (Saastad) for their User Awards on that previous upload I don't do flowers . . . , most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, mono conversion in Nik Collection's Silver Efex Pro 2, colour tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 👍

Great candid capture, he looks happy in his work. I think the mono works best.

THe artist could easily be the customer!
I had one of these portraits done in Strasbourg a few years ago. It was such a good caricature that it still hangs in our home. In the guest loo...

I agree that the B and W lead image is preferable for the reasons you give, Trev: a fine candid shot of the artist at work.
