Week 11 Artist Interview: Yu Ji

This week, I saw a portrait that caught my eye. It’s called¬†Portrait of Victor.¬†It was completely done with charcoal which I found amazing.

It is a very simple portrait of him just sitting there, but the detail is astounding. IT was done with a live model, so I love how I can imagine the actual real person sitting there being the model. What I think is the most amazing about this portrait is that the artist only used charcoal for the whole thing. just one tool can make such beautiful art.
