A great challenge

This one is a brut! Lots of wee stuff to pay attention to but the results are great. Don’t fear making mistakes or taking some artistic lisence (aka- just paint what is close by). In the end,it is wall worthy. Enjoy!


I needed to memorialize my friend's dog and this seemed like a great opportunity. The final product was very well received. I'm very happy with the result!

Loved the painting, looked just like the picture I sent. Very pleased.

Very realistic!

I’ve done a few paint by numbers but this is the first one I have done that was based on a real picture. I was amazed at how realistic it looks!

Color coding is wrong - waste of time and money - what is it going to look like?

See attached images with red arrows - haven't finished yet, but painting number 15 and color mapping looks to be off drastically. I don't really want to finish now because it obviously will look nothing like it's supposed to. I have TWO more that I haven't started - are they all like this?
