4x4in Zippity #640

Today I took the Daily Paintworks Challenge. This week's assignment - to paint a Zippo with only THREE tubes of paint, Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine and White. I had to buy the Burnt Sienna because I never use any other colors than the six plus white. So, I tried it this morning, armed with only the three colors and my 4x4" panel and coffee and gum and itunes and my office assistant (we're friends again after yesterday's fried chicken debacle).


  1. that wonderful peachy reflection adds alot to this, in contrast to all the cooler colors. very nice

  2. Very nice interpretation.Do you use only 6 paint tubes, or several hues in each colors?

  3. Lisa,
    You never cease to amaze me. A classic painting of a classic lighter! You produce great paintings that are also great works of art!

  4. nice job Lisa-I found this challenge enormously challenging

  5. Lisa, I love zippity, the variation of color with the use of only 3 paints is fabulous and the silver really shines~what a great challenge! xo P
