Artist creates life like artworks just by using colour pencils!

Contemplation by Sharon Kow Mention colour pencils and the first thoughts on people’s minds are colouring books and kids. But if anyone knows how to take this “child’s play”on to a whole new level, it’s definitely Sharon Kow. One glance, or even several looks at her pieces and you would never guess that they were created using none other than good ol’ colour pencils!
