Gold, with colored pencils

I know we are a lot of people that thinks it´s difficult to color gold, with colored pencils. I am NOT any expert at coloring gold, but there are others that have found great pencil-combinations for creating that feeling of shiny gold, and in this post I´m going to share these combinations with you.

Recently I talked to Caroline (@wik_coloring) on Instagram, for my coloring book podcast, Passionistacolorista, and she is really good at coloring gold. She has two different combinations, both with Polychromos, and I asked her if I could share them with you, here on my blog, and she said yes.

(And here you can listen to the episode: ”Hanna Karlzon, Polychromos and gold”)

This beetle, from Hanna Karlzon´s Summernight, Caroline made with her lighter gold-combination:
183 Light yellow ochre, 187 Burnt Ochre, 177 Walnut Brown and 199 Black

And on this coloring, from Hanna Karlzon´s Magical dawn, she used her darker gold combination:
107 Cadmium Yellow, 115 Dark Cadmium Orange, 169 Caput Mortuum and 199 black

I´m a hobby-colorista from Sweden, with a big passion for adult coloring books. It started as a way to feel better when I was sick two years but now I just addicted and wants to color every day, although I´m feeling better. Colors makes me so, so happy! I have two coloring book podcasts: Passionistacolorista and Målarbokspodden. And I also have a youtubechannel, called Passionistacolorista, where I do some livestreams.
