The theme for this assignment is a table place setting.  Your still life should be the before or after of a meal. Create an asymmetrical composition consisting of plates, glasses, silverware.  You may also include condiments bottles, cereal boxes, etc., for stronger narrative development. Don't draw a plate in the middle of your paper with a fork and spoon on either side. BOOORING! Notice in the drawing above by Alan De Marche how your "eye" zigs and zags through the composition bouncing off of the tableware like a pinball bouncing through its game board. Furthermore, he has strategically placed bowls, each with a spoon sticking out, throughout the composition establishing a pattern of similarity. Use graphite pencils on 18 x 24 in. drawing paper.
