'Grandma's Spoon' SOLD

'Grandma's Spoon' Acrylic on Canvas Board (30x30cm) SOLD

This old spoon belonged to my Grandma and is perfect for measuring out batter for drop scones and filling cup cake cases! Went back to acrylics for this one today, as I wanted to catch all the detail on the metal spoon. I love that it is wonky at the tip and all scratched!

The surface texture of the canvas board made it easy to get the linen effect of the napkin!

It has been strange working in acrylics again after a week of oils! A bit like swapping between a manual and automatic car! The colours with acrylics certainly don't have the luminosity of oils. Am I become an oil paint convert?
