The category for the April 'Get Dusty' is 'Animals', the challenge is 'Baby animals'. We think that spring is the right time to paint new life!

The category for May is 'Still life', the challenge is 'Still life with porcelain'. You may include others objects, but the emphasis should be on the porcelain, so no vase with flowers, please!

The category for June is 'Figure', the challenge is 'All dressed up!' We want a clothed female figure, either full or upper torso, in a historical, national, wedding or carnival costume. No everyday clothes, please!

I hope you'll rise to the challenge and enjoy it! Happy painting!
