QuoteTo an untrained eye these pictures would look nothing more than standard photographs. But they are in fact hand drawn.These are the works of 47-year-old hyperrealist artist Paul Cadden, who -- often just using a pencil -- is able to recreate photos in amazing detail.From the countless wrinkles on a woman's face, a puff of smoke from a cigarette or dripping water, Cadden makes it look unbelievably real. His work will take on average three to six weeks to produce and he can usually produce about seven works per year, which sell at galleries for up to £5,000 each.Cadden, from Glasgow, said: "I've been drawing since I was six years old and have wanted to be an artist for as long as I can remember."Hyperrealism tends to create an emotional, social and cultural impact and differs from photorealism which is far more technical."Get a closer look in our gallery of high-resolution images.
