Practice with a Limited Palette

So I noticed there's already some colour scheme/palette thread on /ic/, but I thought maybe I would incorporate a different type of exercise? (This could possibly help with the understanding of color, and form, etc etc...)
If you don't have the specific colours, substitutes would be totally fine. This exercise can be digital or traditional, although in traditional, oils would be preferred.
Attached is basically a cheat sheet for the Zorn palette.
Compose a still life, (or find a photo online) of three objects in a triangular composition. It can be fruits with a bottle, drapery with books, etc etc. Use the limited palette and create a small thumbnail for a warm up, and then create a full painting of the still life. Use dramatic lighting.
Post it/Post a photo of it, when done.
Remember to check proportion and always look at the way light is hitting the object. Don't think about the end product, think about the process and how the exercise is to help you! Finally, when a few people post theirs, maybe a full critique on how other can improve? Have fun.

Anyone know of a similar program to Harvard's summer Career Development program, except for a Drawing/Painting focus, not design? I'm stuck in a rut and need an exciting stimulus that will push me with intensive studying, so I want to do something similar to the Career Development program. I know Harvard has summer classes, but there's only like one Drawing and Painting class.
Any school is preferred, but I thought of Harvard because I'm sick of southern California and could use an intellectual and locational change.
