A Golden Opportunity

Or, that would simply be an opportunity to paint gold NMM.

Gold is particularly fun, since it has many of the same elements as sky-earth NMM, as it is incredibly 'shiny' and reflective.

It meant that I could play around with adding greens and purples into the mix to echo some of the environment surrounding the figure, such as the base.  I also like to include a few of the Vallejo fluorescent colors in my gold mixes, to heighten that intensity of color.

Playing around with the warmer vs cooler yellow shades is a great exploration into subtle color balances.  All of these principles went into the videos for Painting Gold NMM and the Yellow Alert color theory video.
