Yeah! Today I’m back to painting the Bangles Mandala. I spent my time fine-tuning the 4 darker yellow shapes; 2 in the upper left section, 2 in the lower right section.
To get the deep rich gold color, I use prismacolor canary yellow and black cherry color pencils. In some of the larger sets of prismacolor pencils, a “gold” pencil is usually included. The problem with that color is that it’s more a metallic brown, it lacks the warmth of what I know gold to have.
In warmer colored sections, I use prismacolor black cherry to create the shadow and then color over it with the color(s) that were beneath it.
