Thank you!

Last Autumn, we have asked you for suggestions for Get Dusty themes for 2020 and have discussed the proposals among the board.

For 2020 we have also introduced a new kind of Free Choice Get Dusty. We are giving you a specific challenge, but you can choose the category (Landscape, portrait/figure, animal or still life/floral).

If you don‘t know what to paint, why not check out the reference photos in our 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.

So here they are; the new Get Dusty challenges!

Happy New Year!

2019 is  over and it is time to choose 'Best of Get Dusty 2019´. All placed entries in the January to November competitions are eligible. Go to the folder 'Best of Get Dusty 2019' and have a look at our 30 beautiful entries. You have until the end of January to choose your favourite. Please post your choice in the forum. The winning entry will be featured on our website and FB page. Happy voting!

In the last 6 months of this year we got a lot of new members.
