Use whatever colors you have, you don’t have to match my colors exactly.
Paint the Barn Door
Load the #10 flat brush using a mix of Cardinal Red and Thicket. Paint the barn door with just a few vertical strokes.
Don’t worry if it isn’t opaque, we will come back and recoat later.
Paint the Snow
Using Wicker White and a flat brush, paint in the snow.
Some blue may show through in areas but let it. We want the shadowy effect that can create.
Recoat the Barn Door
Using the same mix of Cardinal Red and Thicket paint another coat on the barn door. This should be enough to make it opaque.
Line the Barn Window and Door
Using a liner brush and an inky bit of Cinnamon, draw a thin line around it creating the trim.
Using the same method paint the barn door trim as well.
The trim should extend past the door about an eighth of an inch on each side.
