Painting the Rugged Rock Walls


VIDEO DEMONSTRATION: Painting the Rock Walls

Jeana loves owls so I’m placing a tile with two of them in the niche. The outer border is blocked in first, then the dark blue background is painted around the shapes of the owls. Ultramarine Blue + a tiny bit of White is used for the background.

The heads and bodies are painted with a couple of mixes in different combinations of White + Ultramarine Blue + a touch of MUD (2 parts Ultramarine Blue + 1 part Alizarin Crimson). The same mixtures were used for the border.

Using the dark blue mixture the owl design is completed.

A special color is used for the door, Sevres Green. The shadow portion is Sevres Green + a little MUD + a tiny bit of White. The sunlit part of the door is Sevres Green + White. It’s fun figuring out the shadow cast on the door by Looka’s head and ears.

Construction of our building is complete. Come back tomorrow to see what gets painted next! HUGS,
