'Zippo Magic'
Oil  6 x 6

This is my entry for Carol Marine's Daily Paintworks
challenge this week.  The photograph was submitted by
Michael Naples, and participants were only allowed to use
a palette consisting of ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and white.
You would think that using such a limited palette might make this
challenge more difficult, but in fact it was easier to focus on
value shifts without the distraction of a lot of color, and quite
interesting to see the variety of color that could actually be
created from these three colors.
Have to say, I am LOVING these challenges! 

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Now your version looks so real, Claire. Why? Because it looks like it just came from someone's hand, hints of fingerprints, I think. Great job!

Thank you Sherry, I think it might be the glare from wet paint!
