Plan the area for the fake window, and put four pencil dots on the wall to mark the spot.
Use a measuring stick and a level to connect the dots on the wall with a pencil. This gives you straight, level lines to begin the project.
Draw the panes or window divisions. Use the level and measuring stick to divide the drawn square into sections to represent the panes of a window.
Draw a landscape. Decide what you want the scene outside the fake window to be, and draw it in with a pencil.
Paint the window. Begin by painting the area meant to be the physical window, including the areas for panes. Then move to the drawn landscape.
Things You Will Need
- Measuring stick
- Consider stepping outside the box with the landscape portion of the window. Painting it to appear as if you are looking at a brick wall or at a door can add interest to the piece.
