There are still a few days left to enter a painting 'that rocks' into the September 'Get Dusty', so go for it! If you are more of an animal painter then why don't you already start thinking about what to enter into our October competition? The theme is 'Animal', the challenge is 'A visit to the zoo'. What we are looking for is a figure or portrait of an animal you find in zoos. That means, no cats or dogs, and certainly no savannah or rain forest background. We would of course prefer it if you used your own photos. If you use another person's photo, please DO NOT forget to give him or her the credit. Paintings which do not state the author, will be disqualified. Happy painting!


"Let´s rock - "A rocky landscape or seascape" is the theme for the Get Dusty competition September 2016.

Closing date: 25th September 2016, at 00.00 CET. Every member can upload 2 paintings!

Please remember the rules before you upload.


The winner of our summer Get Dusty Competition is:

Lynn Howarth with " Up Periscope!"! Congratulations!
