Custom painting progress of my dog

Hi fellow members,

A family member recently made me a wonderful surprise: he gave me a paint by numbers personalized with my favorite picture of James, my mixed-breed corgi! 

It's not my first paint by numbers but I didn't know it was possible to turn a photo into a custom one!

Just started yesterday and I thought you might want to see it so I'll share the progress with you. I added the picture used so that you can compare and imagine the final result.


There are a few wrinkles on the canvas, I'll lightly iron it to remove them. smile.png

Have you ever done such project?

Cheers,
Louisa

What fun.  Brings back memories of painting by numbers over 60 years ago.  Mum framed a couple of my “artworks” and I’m sorry I threw them out years ago.

That's sad! It's now time to make some again then :laugh:

 

I'll definitely keep you posted! Here is the result after a few more hours of fun
 

I'm super happy the wrinkles are slightly fading away; I can barely see them anymore!

No, but it looks more interesting than the "adult colouring-in" that many of us were hooked on a few years ago, and spent a fortune on boxes of coloured pencils.  Do you buy the paints through the canvas supplier people or separately - water colour or synthetic - just enough for the one image supplied, or more generous?  Other colours available or only to suit the image you order from them?  I did look at the link, just couldn't see that much detail.

 

We do a lot of fiddling with photoshop and others and create some good (and some dreadful) 'painterly' images from photographs and have them printed onto canvas.  But yesterday I sold two of my horses and looking at some photos of them remembered your post and thought it might be interesting to do a paint-by-numbers from a photo for something different to see how it goes.  James looks a great little dog, could you put up a progress photo when you have started his colouring - our Rheneas could have a tiny bit of Corgi in him, he's a (very) mixed breed pup. 

 

Edit to add.  ignore questions, screen-freeze fixed so link "all there" - still need update photos of James.

You just have to send a picture and they turn it into a paint by numbers. They provide you with the canvas, the paint set (more than enough for the painting but you'll just get the colors that suit your image), 3 brushes, a chart (copy of the canvas in case you need to double-check a number in an area you've already painted) an instruction folder.
