Doina,

Your spoon is incredible.  It looks like the real thing.

I traced the template last night.  Hope to try to pencil it in today.  You have really inspired me to do it.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Great job, Lidiya and Doina!  It's amazing how you've captured the metallic look of the spoon!  Only Nolan have come up with a spoon with such distinctive details!  Guess I'll  have to try this one, too!

What a great rendering of the spoon, Doina.  I agree you ladies have set the bar very high for the rest of us.

Amazing work Lidiya & Doina :congrats:

They may have set the bar high, but don't be shy to post your drawings, remember that this stage of the classes is for beginners, so nobody is expecting to see perfect drawings.

Post your drawing no matter how bad you think it is. If I don't see it, I can't help you improve so that you can also reach the quality of the two drawings already posted O0

Well, I must say this spoon came out better than I had expected.  Thanks, Doina and Lidiya for paving the way and inspiring me to attempt it.


Nolan, thanks for walking us through this and choosing something challenging, yet doable.  I really enjoyed working with the kneadable eraser for the first time.  I am beginning to understand the difference in the pencils now - feel more comfortable using them.

I feel really good about doing this spoon, even though I was reluctant to start it.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Mea, also a wonderful rendition of the spoon. 


I have only managed to watch half the lesson and am eager to get started.  There is no doubt that Nolan is the most fantastic teacher.  I really felt as though I excelled in his dog course only because he teaches in a way that I, as a beginner,  could understand. He has such patience and explains things which was easy for me to comprehend. Strangely enough, I was thinking about him this morning and his teaching methods which to my mind, are the greatest and we are indeed blessed to have him laying the foundation for our art endeavours.
