The Spotlight - December 2018 - Potpourri

Welcome artists!

Here is a quick recap of what The Spotlight is all about!

The Spotlight is an activity thread for pastel artists of all experience levels working from photos chosen by a monthly host. Most months, the host will choose photos from only one subject, putting that subject into “the spotlight,” so to speak! For example, one month the subject will be painting water, another month will spotlight flowers, etc.

Some months, rather than spotlight a subject, the focus will be on a challenge of some sort. In those cases, we might have a wider variety of photo references, but “the spotlight” will be on the challenge itself.

Since this is a group activity, we can pool our knowledge and resources, and grow as artists in a fun, “no-pressure” atmosphere.

And, remember, no critiques unless specifically asked for.

The intent is to have fun, try new things, experiment, and perhaps most of all, to see what our friends and colleagues are painting from the same reference material!

Please note: The photos this month were taken by me or are from the Reference Image Library. You have permission to use the photos as reference to create your artwork and to sell them and/or exhibit them. The actual photos still retain the copyright of the photographer. So you cannot copy the photo to your blog, for example, without the permission of the photographer, or digitally alter or reproduce the photo for any purpose other than for your personal use, with the exception of crops, digital alterations and posts of these photos within "The Spotlight" thread.

This month we have a Spotlight Potpourri!

This month, rather than putting the Spotlight on something, we have a Spotlight Potpourri! As we approach the end of the year Holidays, I have chosen a few of my favorite photos from the past year to share with everyone as this month's references!

I hope everyone has a Happy Holiday season! Keep warm, keep safe, and enjoy!



















Don

Re: The Spotlight - December 2018 - Potpourri

looks like everyone is busy with holiday activities. I love the peachy-orange hibiscus. I may actually have inspired me to pick up my sticks after a long hiatus from any art.
