They are all just so well done, its hard to believe you can do such things with a pencil. I'd like to do that one too. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Lynn P,

It's from the free beginner class called Pencil Shading Techniques.  Nolan patiently describes every aspect of drawing - pencils, tonal values, shading, kneadable eraser, how to make a chisel point, etc.  The culminating activity is the spoon.

It is one of the best classes I've taken.  I learned so much.

Hope you do it.  I can just imagine you'll do a fantastic spoon.

aloha

Excellent work on the spoon, Liz. 

I think we would have had great fun working on these if we had all been together in one room.

This looks like a great class! Everyone's drawing turned out so well.

Claude and Liz, your stones are beautifully rounded and shiny! Okay now I AM intimidated. "Nolan says all spoons are welcome. Nolan says all spoons are welcome. Nolan says..." My new mantra for the day. I have a stone and part of a cinnamon bun so far. Gonna be doing a lot of chanting.

 :thankyou:  so much Doina. 
 
Mea, It is so nice to hear you write that this is the best class you have taken as you have learned so much.  Well, all I can say, is that Nolan is a FANTASTIC teacher in getting his message across, for if you had taken the Dog Drawing Course, your whole drawing world would have expanded beyond expectation. As you can gather, I am one of his biggest fans for I just love the way he teaches and I will always be an avid follower of his.

Patricia,  I taught school (not art) for 23 years and Nolan is one of the best teachers I have ever seen.  Both he and Dennis make learning fun and non-threatening.

Your excellent spoon drawing is the perfect example of what we are talking about.

Sarah, come on, you can turn those cinnamon buns into a spoon handle.  I know you can.

Thanks to all who are still sitting on the sidelines for sending us such positive encouragement.  Jump in!

aloha

OMG. . . .Claude, Liz and Lady P. . . .3 more fantastic spoons to add to our set!!
I'm with Sarah, getting more and more intimidated as the spoons show up. . . . . .what I'd like to know, is how can you guys all be so darn fast and so darn good?????
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!
