These are not photos. That’s right, you heard me. These are drawings that had me doing a serious double-take when I first came across these hyper-realistic colored pencil illustrations by Laura Hardie.
Dog Drawings by Laura Hardie
A talented illustrator since childhood, Laura didn’t become a professional artist until later in her life. With a great love for animals – particularly horses, it wasn’t until 2004, after having raised a family, that she got serious about animal portraiture. Working in graphite and colored pencil on paper, she has an uncanny way of capturing both the technical aspects and the emotional component in the faces of her photo realistic portraits.
Here are several impressive realistic pencil Dog Drawings by Laura Hardie on paper.
Working from her home studio in Edinburgh, Laura takes on commissions as well as shows her work in various exhibitions around the world.
Laura Hardie is represented by The Artist’s Room in New Zealand.
