So my latest sketch book is a fabriano sketch journal. It has lots and lots of toned paper, which has proved interesting. It is great since every ten pages it switches colors. This aspect keeps things fresh; and forces me to try new approaches to get the most out of the particular tone. So far it is great with ink, and colored pencil. Standard graphite and charcoal are a little lack luster however. The texture of the paper makes it hard to get a very solid continuous tone. These sketches are from various dance events, nature, and avila valley barn. enjoy!
