Still life drawing by Debora, Drawing Academy student

Currently I am working on drawings of geometrical objects. I would like to ask for your suggestions, for I want to improve my skills and technique. These are still life compositions made from life, the same objects from different angles. The first one is a linear drawing of the objects and their reflections on a shiny surface, with a window behind and above. The other drawing is rendered, the lamp was set left and above the objects.

Drawings and questions from Jeff, Drawing Academy student

I tried to improve the models’ faces based on your video lessons on how to draw a mouth, nose, ears, etc. However, I still find it difficult, especially when I only have 20 minutes to complete the whole drawing. I am interested in any feedback you have for me.
