Why? It’s a simple vector "thing" - easy to draw...

Easy for those that know, not so easy for a novice, maybe show him how easy it is.

Probably the easiest way to draw this shape is to make 4 ellipses for each of the coloured shapes. The four ellipses will have zero fill and zero stroke. you can draw the shapes and use the geometry (boolean) Intersect option.

I’ve just done this roughly to show how it’s drawn.

From here you do geometry Intersect. Notice the blank ellipse is above the drawn shape.

The problem is you have 2 closed objects, so you aren't actually joining two lines.  You are adding a solid circular shape to the other shape, which being under (either behind or in front of) the solid circle makes the other shape disappear. 

If you subtract the odd shape from the circle, the odd shape must be above the circle in the layers panel, then you will have a circle with the odd shaped hole, which is more what I think you want.

I'm trying to replicate step by step what the professor is doing, not trying to make a vectorization , I´ve solved the first step this way, maybe is a start. Thanks for your help

Excellent effort, the only thing it needs is a bit of refinement on the shape but that’s knowing how to manipulate the nodes using the Node tool (A) and all of that comes with practice and experience.

You can reduce the opacity of the curve layer to 50% so you can see the underlying “trace image” to more accurately place the nodes, then, when you feel you have it right just increase the curves layer opacity back to 100%
