Short couse continued
In the next five lessons I did a few studies of hands and arms. The last lesson I wanted to do another Matisse drawing because my wall looked a little empty.

First work @home
I like the style of Matisse ... so I decided to buy a book with a lot of Matisse drawings. It seems good practice duplicating his drawings in between working through The natural way to draw.

Time for Rodin
Time for a change. In stead of using drawings to copy, I used pictures of Rodin's famoes kiss and thinker.

In between TNWTD stuff, I found some time to copy another Matisse.

Some TNWTD stuff
Some practice I did for TNWTD in the last couple of weeks. I didn't save most of it, but just to give an impression. The first three are a gesture, a contour and a modelled drawing (together a sustained study).
Then there is a modelled drawing in watercoulor and the last are drapery practices (only allowed to use three shades of gray)

First a drawing of Matisse in pastel I did a few weeks ago ... not my favorite material
The second is a copy of a drawing by a dutch master from our golden century (conte) and the last one is a drawing I started, but didn't finish yet ...

Started another sustained study. First the extended gesture of myself in front of a mirror.

I like your idea of natural drawing and you are skilled. Keep up !

@Katia: Thanks for the encouragement
Finished the sustained study and drawing class started yesterday. Did a still live there, which a never would have done @home. Somehow I find still lives a little boring, which makes it difficult to setup a composition I like. However, if someone else does the setup and tells me to do one live gets a little simpler.
Also found a copy of a Sargent drawing I did a few weeks ago.

Sustained study 3
Yesterday I finished the thirth sustained study. The pose is the same as the prior one, only this time without clothing. Also some more sketches.
Finished my first drawing course landscape, but didn't take a photo yet.
Hmmm, the face of the modelled drawing doesn't look like me at all. Something went wrong here ...

hey, want to let you know that you´re on the right track. keep drawing! good speed!
i would suggest you to read the book "fun with a pencil" of andrew loomis. it´s free avaiable in the net. jsut google it. it helped me alot to understand basic form of the face and other basic. just take a look at it!
