★ Step 1

Start with a clean outlined sketch of what you're going to paint golden.

★ Step 2

Make the parts that are the closest to the viewer with a bright yellow color. Leave a little bit of white in the center.

★ Step 3

Next to the light yellow add a darker one extending the former form. Follow the outlines of the golden object.

★ Step 4

With a light brown shade fill the rest of the shape.

★ Step 5

Add a second layer of the brownish shade to mark the shadows. Again follow the shape specifics.

★ Step 6

With a gray shade stress on the places where the shadows get deeper. This is very important step for drawing gold, bacause it gives you the typical high contrast of metal.

★ Step 7

Blend it all and be careful not to enter in the lights (yellows).

★ Step 8

This step is optional. You can add touches of orange if you want to increase the illusion of gold.
