These are our Get Dusty challenges for 2021 and 2022. For each Get Dusty we will publish a short article with an explanation of the challenge!
If you don‘t know what to paint, why not check out the reference photos in our Reference Photo Library? This is a collection of free reference photos from members for members. Or upload some of your photos for the benefit of others.
November 2021 - Category: Still Life/Florals - Challenge: Cacti and/or succulents
Cacti and succulents come in a huge variety of shapes and textures but are not often depicted in still lifes or florals. Let us change that! You may show a close-up or plants en plein air, or compose a still life with a cactus or succulent as your centre of interest.
As usual you may enter two paintings. Deadline is November 25. Please do not forget to mention the size of your work and your reference.
