Step 3: Cutting Out A Windowsill

Use Burnt Umber to paint the shadowed ledge of the opening in the wall via the “wet-on-dry” technique for hard edges. Then, drop in Prussian Blue wet-in-wet to make the top edge slightly darker.

Paint the windowsill with the wet-in-wet technique by wetting it before dropping a mixture of Burnt Sienna and Pyrrole Red for a rusty color. Only paint a little of the top edge so the paint runs downwards in a trickle effect. Paint the flower trough in the same way, dropping a mixture of red and Gamboge Nova for a soft orange. Leave some white for highlights, and use Cobalt Violet Light for shadows. Add Burnt Umber for the darkest shadows, and lift out any excess paint with a “thirsty brush“.
