Unbelievable Colored Pencil Drawings by Adolfo Fernandez Rodriguez

Every once in awhile, you come across a photo-realistic artist that blows your mind. The very first Online International Juried Exhibition of the Pencil Art Society just went live and it’s there that we found the work of Adolfo Fernandez Rodriguez. The Madrid-based artist works with colored pencils to create incredible works of art that resemble photographs or, at the very least, oil paintings.

Among the 60 selected pencil images now available to view online at Pencil Art Society, Rodriguez’s works stood out to us because of his ability to draw the colors, bubbles, reflections and ripples of water. Looking through the rest of his portfolio, we found more amazing works that feature detailed drawings of hands and incredible recreations of statues.

Here’s what a fellow pencil artist had to say about Rodriguez, “I only recently discovered this Spanish artist and, really, what else is there to say about his work except – ‘WOW!’ Done in a very realistic style, all of his drawings look like paintings and many of them are almost impossible to tell apart from a photograph. I find not only his work, but also his interpretations and expressions of the love he feels for his many subjects, to be incredibly inspiring.”

It is, however, a cultural and historical Tibetan treasure that has been undergoing tremendous changes in the past few decades, particularly in the midst of global controversy between Tibet and China.
