Still life with a green strainer, Jan Bogaerts
Link is to sold listing on Simonis & Buunk gallery, which has a zoomable version of the image.
Early 20th century Dutch painter Jan Bogaerts has a marvelous touch for portraying the surface textures of his still life objects.
At times his deftly handled light and the tactile quality of his subjects create a contemplative feeling that puts me in mind of the great 18th century French still life and genre painter Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin.

Chinese illustrator Li Yong Hong works in scratchboard, a medium that is almost the inverse of pen and ink.
Instead of drawing in ink directly on a white surface, scratchboard is done on a white board that is coated with clay and then coated with a layer of black ink. The black surface is scratched away with needle-like styli, creating white lines by revealing the clay beneath.
The only presence I’ve found on the web for Li Yong Hong’s work is his portfolio on IllustrationX.
