10 Minute Sketch: Spoon on an ugly placemat



Well I am on to day 3 of my little resolution! This little drawing was of a spoon I saw laying on the table at my parents' house. It was laying on my Mom's awful looking brownish gold placemat on her kitchen table. Now my Mom has really good taste...so I really do not know why she has these placemats. I guess it will be one of those mysteries in life....

The drawing was done with a ball point pen and Prisma markers. I just love my Prisma markers! They are so old and still work like a charm:)

I hope everyone is doing well on this Tuesday! I thank all of you who have left comments for the art giveaway ! I am super excited about it and cannot wait to give my little artwork a new home!

Since school has started up again I have been very busy and have barely been able to get online (and my internet connection at home is not cooperating!) So I am trying to update this blog and visit my favorite blogs as best as I can! Technology can be so frustrating when it does not work..don't ya think?!

Have a wonderful evening...I am off to bed!

It's a great little sketch, it has a lot of life and warmth (even though I agree, generally that brown IS kind of yukky, however, it looks great here)!
Thank you for your comment on my sundress, too :)

Love it! Does your mom know you've immortalized her placemat. ;)

Maisy and Nichole- Thanks for your comments! My mom was laughing at me the whole time while I was drawing the spoon on the placemat...she knows how I feel about them!

I really like this! I'm not sure what it is about it--but I like it a lot.

C.Beth: It is just a fun sketch from observation:) I am doing 10 minute sketches everyday to practice drawing...kind of weird subject matter right?!
