Zippo Lighter

The challenge: Paint this image using only burnt sienna, ultramarine blue and titanium white. That's it. No other colors. With that combo you can have it look pretty darn close to a full color painting by achieving a wide array of values and temperatures.

Every DPW (Daily Paintworks) a group of wonderful daily painters has a challenge and anyone can give it a try. The fun part is all the paintings are post on their blog for all to see. Most of the paintings are for sale. If you would like to see what has been posted for the Zippo Challenge click here. Michael Naples, a great daily painter, posted this weeks challenge. There are over 100 zippo lighter posted so stop in a take a look.
