8" x 10" Oil on linen.
This week's DPW Challenge is a classic Zippo lighter painted with a limited palette. Mike Naples supplied the picture and limited the palette to Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue, and Titanium White. It was a fitting palette for the picture and wasn't too difficult to match the colors of the photo. In an area of reddish purple, I used broken color because I found the two colors mixed together tended to be too gray. I really enjoyed the challenge and the limit placed on it.
