Impression № 053: Skibbereen

We’ve featured Leslie Hawes’ art before, and are glad to have some more from Dr. Hurley’s home county of Cork. Leslie takes the peculiar “reality” in Google Street View as her source, and converts them into brilliant pencil drawings of far-away places.

Leslie tells us: “While most storefronts ‘modernize’, some remain in character. I found this doorway in Skibbereen, County Cork, Ireland. This could have been Dr. Hurley’s place, but I don’t know. This was done with Derwent Artists colored pencil, and this drawing measures 4″ x 5″ or 10 cm x 15 cm.”
