Ramune (Japanese soda) is one of my favorite drinks. I've always thought the design of the bottles were very pleasant and interesting, so I decided to draw one (adorned with a fun little Dum Dum pop). The items behind it (a couple of glitter pens and a glass sharpener) were on my desk during the time of creation, and I liked how they appeared to frame and complement the bottle and its colors.
This is a small (7 x 4.5 inches) mixed media piece created from direct observation. Created with Royal Talens Indian Ink and Speedball Nib, Winsor & Newton Fineliner (blue), Sennelier Ink Brush (orange), Plumchester Paint Marker (yellow), and some white ink for highlights. Completed in December 2020.
