Gesture and more contour line drawings

Today in class I had to do about 15 gesture drawings of a still life. Each time I did a drawing the professor would take away time to make it a quicker drawing. The last one I did had to be done in one minute. We had to make sure we got all the objects drawn on the page with a good composition.

Then I had to choose the drawing with the best composition and make a full size drawing from the same view point. I am learning how to make line look different in a contour line drawing. As things are closer to me I made thicker lines and as things were further away I faded out the lines. Doing many of these gesture and contour drawings will help me with composition.
My homework: MORE CONTOUR DRAWINGS!
