Your probably wonder exactly what the “Spotlight” is?
It was started on wetcanvas.com several years of ago that has so much information. It is designed for anyone wanting to learn or expand their skills in using pastels. Each month a new subject is put together. Don Ketches (DAK723 on wet canvas) is a member who donates his time every month putting it all together for the members of Wet Canvas. There is usually four or five reference pictures to choose from to complete that month’ study. Everyone takes the time to comment, encourage you and answer any questions you may have.
November spotlight was on fall color. I did this on 9×12 sanded paper with soft pastels
It was a good lesson in learning to control color as the colors in the reference photo was so vibrant. I am looking forward to December’s Spotlight. It will give me a little time out from what has become a very busy time for me. Hats off to those that donate so much and share their time so generously on the Wet Canvas site.
