What is the cleanest way to caulk and paint around black windows?

Hello! We are wrapping up a 2-year home renovation that included installing the beautiful black framed windows pictured here. The painters used black caulk on the windows and then attempted to paint the inset window sills/reveals white. Here are pics of the mess that resulted. They are now attempting to "fix" it, but only seem to be making the problem worse. We are planning to defect from our contractor's painter and get a couple of other opinions, but this forum has never let me down, so I thought I'd throw the question out here as well. Can you help educate me on the correct way to finish these windows off with a nice, clean line? Thanks in advance!
