View Of A Window: Buckets Of Watercolor Flowers
Step 9: Framing A Window
While the watercolor flowers dry, mix Burnt Sienna and Brilliant Orange, then paint the window frame. Feel free to leave some white highlights, and follow the direction of the grain of the wood. Paint in as few strokes as possible for a cleaner line, and avoid the flowers on the windowsill.
Build up more color along the bottom edges of the frame for its shadowed edges, and darken these shadows even more with a Prussian Blue and orange mixture. Be careful here though, as you don’t want the shadows to bleed too much into the base color.
