Drawing with a grid - I loved drawing/enlarging like this back in high school. It's makes so much sense to me.

safety pins and rolled up or torn pieces of paper make great up-close still life subjects. love it in charcoal.

Black and white painting on textured paper. The grey of the paper acts as the mid-tone (example by Amiria Robinson).
