Zippo by Sheri Jones

Zippo by Sheri Jones
10 x 10 oil on canvas
I created this as part of the challenge Michael Naples posted on Daily Paint Works this week. The instructions were to paint this lighter using burnt siena, ultra marine blue and white. I was surprised you can get such a wide range of values using such a limited palette. It was a fun challenge. I painted this with a palette knife.  Sold

Great job on this challenge! I like all the texture you created with the palette knife.

The award for most texture on a zippo lighter goes to Sheri Jones. Also, like the flame. Yours was the only lighter with one. Cool.

The Theme: Dark, light, and reflections in a simple subject matter as a zippo is unique. Your eyes have fallen upon a the absence of light in the background while bringing about a curious folly, but unambiguous colors presented in your theme. Excellent work.
