Here is an old sketchbook from 2003 that I filled while traveling through Italy for 2 months. Some good, some bad, some horrible, but all great memories from the trip. 5 minutes to about 30 minutes, i guess??

Really nice carnet de voyage!!! very masterly, definetly has the feel of old masters written all over it! (probably because they're master copies... (the portraits I mean) I don't reckognize them all...), but the handling is very reminiscent of "old school" as well.
I dig the landscapes the most, they almost have a rembrandt markmaking to them. thanx for sharing ^^

Thanks all. I was able to keep a small book from a quick trip to Paris as well, Mostly studies from paintings and sculpture, I'll search around tonight for those scans. i agree with the Highlighting. I spent the last year playing around with drawing with white chalk,
Here is one that is way in progress. White chalk, Graphite, on Verso Ingress Heavyweight paper.
Well the drawing of the guy is from another drawing from life, I'm redoing it cause I didn't like the paper that it was on, I have over done some areas and I wanted to make it a little larger(35 by 25 in.) I had toned the paper myself with gouche and in wouldn't take the darks the way I wanted.
I used just a regular mech 2b pencil, I smudge and erase out.
