Tried something completely new (for me, at least): I made a head out of clay yesterday, after live model. It's a bit like drawing, only three dimensional. And oh yes, clay is somewhat less cooperative than pencil or watercolors... at least for the first half hour I asked myself more than once what I got myself into now:

Then, slowly, my head started to look more and more in shape:
And I started to enjoy it! You can keep on changing things and the head acquired more and more expression. The three-dimensional aspect was new, but a valuable experience.
Reasonably content now, but all is still possible. Added water and wrapped it up to resume the work later. To be continued...
