My daughter suggests a swap for props for different cosplays. Cosplays are costumes based on established characters from anime, manga, video games, movies, tv, etc. such as Mario, a Disney Princess, or Sherlock. Ideas might be a modified gun for a steampunk character, a tiara for a princess, the master sword from Zelda, etc. The list goes on and on.
I've painted with acrylic, watercolor, tempera, wax, etc but never oil. It is now my new favorite. This still life was set up based on texture, shadows, and tone. I'm pretty proud of my first attempt. I hope you like it.
I took a printmaking class this past summer and all of the prints were over 24" by 36". I really enjoyed the class and may take another class this summer. The butterfly print has hidden images within the wings that are meaningful to me. I don't know if you can spot them or not. We did big reliefs in wood, sintra and plexi. I will post the other projects soon. Hope you enjoy.
