Most think of gold as a metallic and sparkling yellow-bronze color. This artists' oil represents a more relaxed and realistic approach to the color gold. As found in nature, gold deposits have a much milder color than you'd expect. This paint captures that color minus the sparkling sheen.
This gold paint has a natural hue, recalling a soft and warm yellow wood or pale flesh. Think of an expanse of sand glowing under a midday sun or the well-groomed coat of a yellow labrador retriever. The light shade makes it an ideal highlight for darker browns or oranges, as well.
Use gold to trim the garments of royals or the edge of fine dinnerware in your paintings of still life. This gold can give a richness to any painting, whether it's full of opulent glamour or understated natural beauty.
