a story in every line.

Standard

A pencil drawing by a 16 year old Irish girl has won a National Art Competition. Shania McDonagh is tipped as a future top artist. The man she drew is a Fisherman and Seaweed Harvester named Coleman Coyne. There’s a story in every line.

 “His name is Coleman Coyne, and he’s from Connemara in County Galway. He passed away earlier this year. The portrait is done using graphite pencil, and it took around 100 hours of drawing to complete the portrait.” – Shania McDonagh

“youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art.”

  1. I am bowled over by the talent of Shania McDonagh. I don’t think that I have ever seen a pencil drawing that is anywhere near as good as this one. My Mum was very talented, but even she would concede that Shania is one-hundred times her better.

    Thanks for sharing!

    If YOU have, please tell me about it. Better still, share it with us.

    My Mum was very talented, but even she would concede that Shania is at least one-hundred times her better.
