I have long been fascinated by people such as cartoonists who can draw things just by imagining them. I seem to need the real thing in front of me in order to get its shape and perspective right. But I wanted to try this way with the Sweet challenge. Heaven knows I've drunk enough cups of tea and baken and eaten enough cookies to be able to think it through to the paper. But again without having the actual cup to look at the perspective seems a little off - or perhaps just uneven as if the cup and the cookies have a slightly different perspective. But I'm pleased with the Jam Thumbprint cookies.

This is my second attempt at spoon. The first one was a bit disappointing in terms of color - none of the grays that I created were very gray. For this one I used indigo watercolor paint and it is truer to the color it should be. Again, this was fun and I enjoyed doing it.
