  • paper - Refers generally to all types of thin matted or felted sheets or webs of fiber formed and dried on a fine screen from a pulpy water suspension. The fibers may be animal, such as hair, silk or wool, or mineral, such as asbestos, or synthetic. However most paper is made from cellulosic plant fiber, such as from wood pulp, grass, cotton, linen, and straw.
  • pen and wash drawings - Drawings made using a pen and ink, then altered or embellished with transparent washes of ink or watercolor, for example, to create an atmospheric effect. Usage may overlap with "ink wash paintings," which may appear similar but typically use brush only, not pen.
  • seascapes and water scenes
