ZIPpo


It's metal, I couldn't resist.
Very limited palette - burnt sienna, ultramarine blue 
and titanium white.
I don't use white with my watercolors so the paper did that job.

Had fun and Thanks to Theresa Bayer for bringing this Challenge to light!

If somebody told me I was going to like a painting of a Zippo lighters, I'd have thought them crazy. This is a very cool painting and the limited palette contributes to its simplicity.

Love how you captured the reflections. Painting metal and glass can be difficult for many, not you, however. :-)

I love this Lee, you got the reflections perfectly and brought back some memories of the old zippos. You have done an amazing job with your limited palette.
