Forks spoons and shadows 6"x6" oil

I don't like painting spoons and forks so I decided to challenge myself today and paint a whole gaggle of them.  I started differently than I usually do.   I usually use my paint brush to make a few guiding marks but this time because I was trying so hard to be in control (I know I need to let this go but sometimes the urge is too strong) I sketched it on the canvas with a pencil.   I also used a flat 1/2" synthetic brush to block in because it gave me a more precise edge.   My favorite part or parts of the painting are the shadows.
