Challenge #3 - Frames
When one is painting a museum masterpiece, painting the frame accurately is just as important as the masterpiece. Not only does a well-painted frame increase the illusion of depth, but the type of frame on the museum piece is known. It would be so much easier to make up a gold-ish frame, but the authenticity of my painting would be diminished.
Much of the frame color is a mixture of radiant yellow, yellow ochre, cadmium lemon yellow, and titanium white. I chose to paint the small frame first and while I was there, finished that painting.
