So I want to paint a spotlight and something under the spotlight. My canvas is black so it gives a good contrast, but I'm nervous of attempting to do the spotlight and figure because of getting the shadows and light right. Any tips?

Learn shadow and light with pencil and white paper. It will take years. Don't worry about paint yet.
