I bought a sketchbook by Daler-Rowney, called Earthbound in the Cachet series. Its a hardcover book with a brown kraft-like recycled paper with little flecks of fibres in it.
I wanted to see how coloured pencils would work on this paper and they seem to lay down well, so I played around with a portrait. I'll try another more serious attempt at a portrait when I can this week.
Speaking of which, David Lobenberg has created a Self Portrait Global Love In that everyone of all abilities are encouraged to participate in. The only catch is that you have to be wearing headwear of some kind. I'll have to see what I come up with over the next few weeks and submit something. The due date is September 12, 2009.
