Coleman by Shania McDonagh

This incredible photorealistic pencil drawing of an elderly Irish man was created by Shania McDonagh, a remarkably talented 16-year-old student in Ireland. The drawing, entitled “Coleman,” is based on a photograph of an Irish fisherman by photographer James Fennell. McDonagh recently took first prize with the drawing in the Texaco Children’s Art Competition. This year marks McDonagh’s fifth consecutive first prize in the competition.
