Below incredibly realistic everyday objects are drawn by Italian artist Marcello Barenghi who only uses a standard set of art supplies (colored pencils and occasional enhancements using markers or watercolor) to reproduce the likeness of everyday items, including anything from a bag of chips or bottle of whiskey to a crumpled up banknote. Barenghi’s work goes beyond just seeming realistic, they appear almost three dimensional and make people wonder what they’re actually looking at. Barenghi runs a YouTube channel where he documents the process of almost every drawing.
