 I have several types/sizes of sketchbooks including iPhone and iPad drawing apps going at all times. Some sample pages are shown below.
"The iPad's backlight lets you paint at any time of day, the app's color wheel provides every pigment, and its very nature renders set-up and clean-up obsolete." - David Hockney 
These small digital paintings were drawn with my finger on an iPhone. The Brushes app turns a phone into a very portable digital sketch pad. Brushes for iPad is an even more robust program. m

Sketches Of Florence
02.20.2010 The sun dropped below a cloud bank backlighting the cityscape as I sketched this view from the sidewalk on the upper deck of the Eads Bridge. I could hear the Metrolink trains crossing the bridge on the rail deck below. I saw a couple of barges on the river pass through the stone piers that hold the whole thing up. The legs of the Arch cast fierce shadows across the Mississippi and the temperature climbed up to a welcome 50 degreees. My fingers did get cold though and after about an hour and a half I called it a day.
