Painting Gold

This object is not as hard as it looks.  Whenever you have an object with a lot of intricate patterns or designs, paint the form first, paying attention to the light and shadow.  Keep it simple!!!!   Then go back and paint in the details but don't paint them verbatim.  It's ok to leave some parts out.  Again, make the pattern or design simple, let the viewer's eyes and mind fill in what you have left out.   Colors here are Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Scarlet, Zinc Yellow and Titanium White.
