Drawing Day 3

I practiced something called the Power Stroke for drawing lines. The idea is that you always draw towards 2 o'clock, turning your medium as needed. In order to try this, I drew some Cliques. You can even tell where I typically started from, since I accidentally overran the destination point.

I also tried to draw some bubbles by making a connected "skeleton" of lines and then using the vertices as the center of the circles. The benefit of this is that you can see approximately the radius of the new circle by looking at the length of the line between the two points. Additionally, I "ghosted" the circle by moving my hand in the shape of the circle without putting down my pen, to see what the final circle would look like. Some thoughts, difficulties, and things to try:
