This week in class I got to look at Romina’s art works. Her gallery was called “Shifting Focus,” and all of the pieces are a series of portraits done from direct observation with a live model. Out of all of her portraits, which there were 8 of them, this one was my favorite. I really like the shading that is done with this piece. His facial expression makes the tone of this very mysterious, almost telling you a story. This piece was called “The Portrait of Victor.” It was done with charcoal and pastel on a 38×50 inch canvas, and it was done in 2014. Romina limited her tools and attempted to explore the full potential of the charcoal and pastel. She did a really good job with this live model.
