99 paintings of bottles of beer – Beer 6: Crown Lager

The sixth painting in my 99 bottles of beer series, another Aussie beer, this time it's a Crownie!

Crown Lager - originally made by Carlton & United Breweries (CUB), a subsidiary of Foster's Group.

The unique bottle shape and label was designed by Eveline Annie Harvey (1910 β€” 2008), a commercial artist working in Melbourne who was also responsible for many other well-known labels during the period.

Eveline produced the Crown Lager artwork at print size using only a single haired paintbrush, I'm not that patient..

I'm back up to 13 colours ( I used M.H. Ivory black too ).
I was being lazy - I could have done without atleast 2 of those browns - the Michael Harding Burnt Sienna and Old Holland Yellow Ochre Burnt are so close I think even Caravaggio can see my laziness (that ones for you Pete).
For the paint nerds reading this (there aren't any, I know), that Williamsburg "French Light Sienna" has an interesting greenish tinge when put against the right colours.

Cheers mate!
6 and counting, 93 to go....
