Arrived as expected. Item is quality canvas. This piece has MANY small areas so FOCUS is the name of the game. Beautiful colors. As with previous review I recommend buy a set of better brushes (which I got at Amazon).
I did add a white pencil to my order which helps eliminate the seen through numbers on the light colors.
Can't wait to begin my next one which sits waiting! Perfect for winter doldrums.. music paint and away you go!
I ordered "Sunflower Park" by Gustav Klimt, which is a gorgeous piece of art, and I am having a great time working on it. This is my first PBN project since I was a kid and I was worried it wouldn't be challenging, the paint and canvas would not be high quality, but boy was I wrong! The design is very intricate and some spaces are very tiny! I am using a lighted magnifier and the smallest paintbrush I could find at the art store, and I am digging it! I already know where I will be hanging the finished work, and I am now shopping for my next project, although I am far from finishing. I suspect this one will take me a month or more. Perfect for long snowy winter nights by the fire.
This was my second paint by number piece and much more difficult than my first piece. It probably took me over 100 hours of working on it but it was well worth it. The outcome is pretty much identical to the product picture and I'm very pleased with it. The only reason I took one star off is because two of the paints were a bit dry and thus difficult to work with; the other four or five were too watery and I had to repaint three or four times to make sure the color looked vibrant and wasn't see through. All in all, I would definitely purchase from the site and do it again.
Even though I had lost the map with all the numbers on it, this painting was abstract enough to give me artistic license for guessing where certain colors went. I had the canvas professionally stretched on frame before painting and I would suggest this. I loved doing it.
