I’ve done a number of them. As a watercolor painter the paint by number is both different and captivating. This provider has excellent work and framed they are easy to paint on. I’ve done my three grandkids and just finished one of a couple. They capture the look of them and surprise reveal toward the end when the details are added.
I am so thrilled with my paint by numbers. It is so incredible and is already hung up in my home. This photo was from our wedding and having it as a painting is amazing!
This review follows my other two reviews (“Route 66” by Ken Zylla and “Bridges,” my first custom) that outline all the aspects of PBN and MPBN that I think important. I have also painted “At the Movies” by Mr. Zylla. “Anchors” is from my photo of a bay along the island of Limnos, Greece. In my review of “Bridges” I mentioned that MPBN may get you to 70 to 90% of what you want for a finished product (I made those numbers up) if you want to go beyond what you get out of the tube. That certainly was the case for this PBN. There was much room for creativity and experimentation that included adding stuff (e.g., lamp posts and anchors to all the boats instead of a few), removing stuff (e.g., funky patterns that did not translate well from the original photo like the man standing in the back of the boat with the blue cab), and fixing stuff (e.g., better defining buildings and boats). I do mix my own colors including using those from an acrylic paint set (e.g., better defining sky and water gradients). For fun I included my initials and those of my wife and son in the painting. I am not an artist; I am a scientist (although there is much art in science such as constructing testable hypotheses). My dad was an artist and gave all the good stuff to my sister, who is now working on a MPBN PBN after seeing our collection. Thus, the custom painting experience for me has been rewarding. I did not include the original photo in “Bridges” as I consider the final product to be the most important. I included the original photo here to help illustrate that there are creative opportunities beyond photos of people and animals and the flexibility in painting. I did do something interesting. I sent the same Greek photo to another PBN company. I ordered the one with a larger color palette than the 24 we get. However, there was no detail in the translation. Not worth it. As you all know if you are going to spend months (3 to 4 for me) on a painting you need to “own” it. The custom route in MPBN offers an extremely creative process from the taking of the photo to the adding and subtracting of material on a detailed canvas that goes beyond what comes out of the tube. You do have to accept that the translation from photo to canvas is not perfect. Speaking of extreme detail, my current custom (a scene I shot from a rural village in Bulgaria) is, well, interesting to say the least. If I do a review on it, it may not be till the snow flies (this is Michigan).
The background, an oriental rug, was a serious challenge to get right. You got it perfectly! As you did for the dogs. Thanks so much. You are a pleasure to work with.
