Expressive drawing practice

It's been a while since I worked on the exercises from Steven Aimone's book...I finally finihsed the chapter on shapes.

This exercise is about static shapes (circle, square, triangle), directional shapes (rectangle, elipsis, elongated triangle) and a combination of both (chosing shapes from both groups for a total of three). I wrote my answers to the questions from the book on each page, easier to remember this way.
The next exercise was a still life. I setup a simple still life and I had to look at it in terms of shapes and draw these shapes. This is the still life:
And these are five shape sketches - I used different pens and pencils for each:
The last exercise was a drawing made using a combination of shapes and lines.
