Drawing and painting does not require expensive papers or paints , even tea works as your paint.
Victor Hugo, the very great poet and novelist, was also a very decent drawer. He had the habit of letting coffee fall on a piece of paper and then "spreading" it with a point with a chiaroscuro effect.

Some of his designs are visible at the Victor Hugo museum in the house he dwelt, in Place des Vosges, when he had to flee precipitously during the night of the coup d'état by the future Napoleon III.
