Another bombona

For this version of the ‘design classic’ gas bottle (bombona in Spanish) I put a wash of acrylic paint over the charcoal drawing and then applied a crackle glaze and stains.

Bombon[it]as

These are variations of a charcoal drawing of the orange butane gas canister which is ubiquitous here in Spain…for me it’s a design classic. I scanned the original drawing and¬†coloured it digitally, experimenting with different colour combinations.

In Spanish they are called bombonas, and bombonas bonitas means pretty gas bottles, hence I’ve combined the two words.
