How to Draw A Spoon – Let’s Get Started!
This guide on how to draw a spoon will begin with arguably the most important part of it; the part that holds whatever the spoon is being used to eat or prepare.
This will also be quite an easy step to do, and you can start by drawing a horizontal thin oval shape.
Then, start another line above this oval that curls tightly around the perimeter of the oval. It will only be surrounding the top half of the oval for now, but we will draw the rest soon.
Once you have it looking as it does in our reference image, you can then move on to step 2!
Step 2 – Now, draw the base of the spoon
For this second step of your spoon drawing, we will be drawing the base of what is known as the bowl of the spoon.
It’s easy to see why it’s called this, as it functions as a tiny bowl that contains whichever substance it’s being used for.
To draw this bowl, simply draw a curved line beneath the oval that you drew previously, and this will connect to a small rim around this oval.
That’s all there is to it for now, and then you can carry on this drawing in the third step.
Step 3 – Start drawing a curved handle for the spoon
Continuing with this guide on how to draw a spoon, we will start drawing the handle of the spoon.
This should be another simple step for you to do, as all you need to do is draw a line moving away from the spoon. This line will be slightly curved, but it should be pretty smooth despite this curve.
We will only be drawing half of this side of the handle for now, but we will draw more of it very soon.
Step 4 – Next, draw the end of the spoon handle
You can now finish drawing the tip of the handle that you started in the third step of this guide.
Simply extend the line that you drew in the last part of the guide, and then at the end you can curve it in on itself.
In our example, we gave it a bit of a sharp edge, but you could make it more rounded if you prefer. You could even draw a small oval near the end for a hole that you would hang the spoon from.
Once you’re happy with how it looks, you can then move on to some final details in the next step of the guide.
Step 5 – Add the final details to your spoon drawing
Now you’re ready to finish off the final details in this guide on how to draw a spoon. Once you have drawn these details, you’ll be ready to finish it off with some colors in the final step of the guide.
First, you can complete the outline by finishing off the rest of the spoon handle until it connects back near the bowl of the spoon.
Then, it will simply be a matter of drawing some more details.
These will include a rim along the handle of the spoon, and then you can draw a curved line inside the bowl to show that there is something contained within.
You can also really finish this image off by adding your own details and elements. These could include a background, and could also draw what this spoon would be used to eat or prepare.
How will you finish it off before adding some color?
Step 6 – Finish off your spoon drawing with color
This is the final step of your spoon drawing, and in it we shall complete it with some color. In our reference image, we went with some grey shades to give the spoon a metallic look.
This is just one approach that you could take, however, as spoons can be made from many different substances.
Some of these include plastic or even wood, so you have a lot of options with how you could color it in.
Choosing your colors is just a part of it, however. You can also get the desired look for your spoon by changing up the art tools and mediums you use.
What do you think you’ll use to finish off your drawing? We can’t wait to see what you choose!
