life drawing

last week i started to read "the natural way to draw". i'm trying to do the exercises proposed. so last saturday during the class i took a few minutes to try to put this in practice. i did several tries, non-showables, hahaha, but this one is the last i did, in which i tried not to look at the paper i was drawing on; it's very difficult no to do that when one is used to doing it, but in this one i looked a few times just to know where i was putting the pencil (dry marker-staedtler - black). i'm geting into a new world with this
NOTE: after several comments I received, I wanted to explain I didn't do this drawing as a contour, but gesture drawing or quick study of about 1'30"-2 min

This is a lovely drawing! So loose and yet the proportions are correct - the foreshortening and everything1 Very nice!

I can't believe you didn't look for most of this. You should see my blind contours if you want a laugh. Nice job, Martin

This is really looking great! Almost unbelievable that you did not look at it while drawing. Wow!
After your first impression would you recommend "the natural way to draw"?
