KITCHEN, JEZ EDEN


Coloured Pencil in A4 Sketchbook
I couldn't think what that middle implement was called when I was drawing, nor could Dev.  Then in bed I suddenly thought of it, and said loudly "FISH SLICE" and he said "Fish Slice".  End of conversation.  After over 56 years we don't need to make lengthy explanations!

I had intended to draw just the spoons and fish slice, but when the sun suddenly shone in brightly the shadows gave such vitality to the image.

  1. Jez we both were of like mind as I too drew kitchen utensils today just now in fact. Yours are much more lively with their red color and curvaceous shadows! Love them. I would call that "Fish Slice" a spatula. Wonder if that's an English Thing? I'd call the one on the right a slotted spoon. The one on the left a scrapper. Wonder what others would call them from other parts of the world? Well done art!

    1. We find the fish slice the most useful. I think the reason I couldn't think what it was called was because we don't eat fish (or meat). I recently got a yen for red in the kitchen and keep buying new red items - the implements are new and very cheerful.

    1. Thanks Fran, it's so nice to get encouragement for the type of drawing I've never tackled before, and I do want to achieve more of a loose look like this.
