Zippo-Light My Fire Oil Painting

Copyright 2011 Maria Soto Robbins




This painting was inspired by the latest Daily Painting Works Challenge. We were to use only burnt sienna, ultramarine blue and titanium white. That's it, no other colors! 

It was a bit difficult to achieve a wide array of values and temperatures with these 3 colors only, but I think it came out very nicely and it was fun working with these colors that I've always loved.



Dimension: 8x10x canvas panel 
Media: Oils

I love it. It's amazing how it looks like it's actually metalic and reflective!! Nice job.

Wow...that is really neat...
you nailed that challenge!
I can feel the coolness of the metal, and the anticipation of a spark, and fire.
I <3 it!
