bloody wooden frame
'The painting has a natural coloured wooden frame.'
I am not sure about the use of 'natural', here. To me, 'natural ... frame' feels like the frame could have been made of wooden branches or twigs. That is not what I tried to express.
The frame is made of nicely polished wooden strips, and the painter gave these a kind of green-brownish colour, as often seen in Nature. How to modify coloured to express this quality?
Re: bloody wooden frame
To me, "natural-colored wood" means wood that has not been stained. It would exist as it was cut from a log, except that it might be preserved with a colorless preservative, such as polyurethane.

While you are logically right, I tyhink they might mean something like stained rather than painted- colored but with the wood coming through.
It could be "stain", but stains also have colors. :wink:
