Drawings from pencil, by Paul Cadden

These pictures may look like photographs but despite looking like they have been captured on a camera, these are actually hand-drawn images created by hyperrealist artist Paul Cadden.The 47-year-old, from Scotland, is able to recreate photos in amazing detail, often just using only a pencil.

From the wrinkles on a womans face, a puff of smoke from a cigarette or dripping water – Cadden’s drawings look unbelievably realistic.

Hyperrealism was born from the idea of photorealism, which are paintings based on photographs but created in a non-photographic medium.

Taking an average of between three and six weeks to produce, Cadden creates about seven pieces each year – which usually come in A1 or A0 sizes – and sell at galleries for up to 5,000 each.

Some of Cadden’s work is being exhibited at the Plus One Gallery, which specialises in hyperrealism art. For more information, please visit:
