I’ve completed many PBN. This has been my favorite so far. I had it stretched out on a wood frame once finished. It came in packaged very nicely. Super fast delivery. I ordered Sunday and got it on Thursday. Canvas came rolled. Paints were so vibrant and had great coverage, very minimal transparency on certain colors. No need for gesso. I had my own brushes so did not need the generic ones that come with the kit. I would say about 80- 100 hours put in. Looking forward to my next one.
I've been doing paint by numbers for 3 years for stress relief. By far this piece was my favorite. It turned out so well I think I'll frame this one.
Beautiful painting and the sections seem well-drawn and not impossibly tiny, but I don’t think any thought was put into the colors. They just picked colors that were “close enough.” In particular two of the shades of dark blue are so close as to indistinguishable, and the result is that the feathers on the bottom bird’s head just look like one big blue mass, with no feather pattern. Kinda disappointing to put so much work in on tiny little feathers only to have that detail disappear once the paint dries. This is a problem across the painting as a whole, as the background colors in the bottom of the painting are all so close to black that it looks like just a plain black background
Working to finish this and begin another!
