With jewelry rendering, nothing helps to convey painting technique like a series of step-by-step pictures. I did the following necklace rendering tonight, stopping along the way to document my progress in pictures.
Color in all gold areas of your design with the matte gold color gouache paint:Step 2 –
Add all darkest values (in this case I’ve added a medium gold matte shade and a dark brown shade):Step 3 –

♥ A thought for today ♥
The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
I love your designs and how you color them, can you please tell me which color and brand you use
For most of my jewelry renderings I use either colored pencils on vellum paper, or Windsor & Newton Designer Gouache paints. The colors I use frequently for rendering gold colored metal are Primary Yellow, Permanent Yellow Deep, Yellow Ochre and White (for the highlights). However, these shades, along with the paint brand, are just my preference. (Orange tints for low-lights are also very helpful for creating rich gold color.)
I hope this information helps! With all best wishes,
