One of the awesome things about learning how to draw is that you have countless items that would make a perfect subject. From appliances to flowers to utensils. Everything is a possible drawing and one of the ways to become a master at it, is by drawing as many different things as possible. So, in today’s article, I want to share my spin on how to draw a spoon in 5 simple steps.
The average spoon will teach most beginners how to draw curved lines that all flow into each other. There are barely any sharp corners or jagged edges in a spoon so your drawing will be pretty flat and smooth.
With that being said, let’s analyze our reference for this spoon drawing followed by my 5 steps on how to draw a spoon in just a few minutes.
For this tutorial, we’ll start by drawing the arm of the spoon, followed by the handle and then by the scoop itself. The arm is a simple rectangle whereas the handle starts as a rectangle shape that rounds towards the end.
Thereafter, we’ll complete the spoon drawing with an oval which represents the small bowl/scoop. This spoon drawing shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to complete at most. I hope you enjoy it. Let’s get started, shall we?
Steps For Drawing A Spoon
Draw two parallel lines that are about 6-7 cm in length and 1 cm apart from each other. This will be the arm that we discussed above. Don’t spread these lines too far apart from each other as this will make your spoon look out of proportion.
At the bottom of your two lines, extend them outwardly into a gentle curve. We’re essentially creating the base for which we will draw the handle which can be described as a rounded rectangle.
Your handle shouldn’t be longer than your arm so makes sure that you start rounding it about 4 cm into extending it. It must also be thicker or spread further apart compared to the distance between the lines for the arm.
Now, we’ll draw the adjoining portion of this spoon which will then extend into the scoop/bowl of the spoon. It’s just a slightly rounded line that extends outwards as you draw it.
The final step is to draw an oval that reaches a gentle point but still remains rounded at the top. You can add a secondary line within the oval that is thin to add more detail and depth to the scoop itself. I added a super light grey tone to this spoon drawing and that was it.
I know that a spoon drawing is ridiculously simple and easy but the point of easy drawings is to build experience through practice.
When you start off with these types of drawings, it becomes really easy to level up. I see far too many people quit drawing because they started with images that tutorials that are too advanced.
Start simple and work your way into an intermediate level. It’s hard to get intimidated or frustrated at drawing when the tutorials you start with are fairly achievable. As you gain confidence and experience, you can move onto our other drawing guides.
