For me, one of the great things about travelling in Europe was the discovery of just how much drawing the great European artists of the 20th century actually did.
The drawings were most often done in drinking establishments, usually of the people sitting across from them. Sometimes they drew on the menu, sometimes napkins; occasionally they actually brought some decent drawing paper with them.
In Holland it was the Van Gogh exhibit that was my biggest influencer, especially when I saw this man lifted right out of a Van Gogh sketch.

A friend and I went nuts drinking and drawing in a Bruges pub after seeing the Magritte exhibition in Brussels. (The post about the ‘t Brugs ‘Beer Boutique’ in Bruges.)
