The "Battle at the High Seas", was my first PBN in over 45 years. Not sure why I choose such a detailed and time-consuming painting for my first PBN but something about its Nautical theme just spoke to me. Although it took well over 9-10 months to complete with just painting before work with a cup of coffee I'm so glad I took the time and patience to complete it. Love the results! Masterpiece by Numbers provides great paintings and paint! I used clear gesso on the canvas to start and added flow aid to the paint since I took so long to complete it.
This one took much longer than I expected. The water is very detailed and the template often left some areas hard to decipher. Not recommended as a first painting. However, the end result was quite satisfying and turned out quite nice.
Here it is the end of July and I have just now finished; I received the kit end of May. This is my first attempt at any kind of paint by number. I let my husband pick out what he wanted, I honestly would recommend doing an easier one for the first attempt for a number of reasons. #1; There is a learning curve in reading the numbers, I think it would have been helpful to have that under your belt before starting such a difficult piece. Many areas appeared to be without numbers, and there were a few that indeed were; but I found most areas did have an origin number, it just some had finger like projections away from the main body. The areas without numbers I was able to look at the sample photo and estimate the color family that needed using. #2 you need to invest in decent brushes. I am sure that the kit they sell is fine but I wanted some varied sizes and a few more than just fine tip sizing. Once I realized some of my frustration was the brushes I "Amazoned searched" and found what I needed. Things went much better after that! #3 you need to tend to the paint. I found that keeping toothpicks handy allowed me to stir frequently, it it started to appear thick I would add a drop of water. The paints I used at the beginning did not fair as well and I struggled to get all that was needed. Having a magnifying glass hand is also a must! It is not a painting that will get done in a couple of weeks but I think the results are well worth the efforts. I have ordered more today!
