How to paint the interior of a Mansion – Part 2

painting by Pat Harrison

I have been commissioned to create a painting of the interior of a mansion. The customer sent me a number of photographs to work from. After posting the sketch I can now add the first instalment.

The windows of the room next to the main subject of the painting look out towards the bushes in the surrounding park. I used a very much diluted portion of sap green to create the illusion of light coming through those windows. The darker browns of diluted raw umber set those windows off nicely while cad yellow helps to outline the book shelves and the arches above the windows. Chinese white was used to highlight the window frames.
