Created by Dan Robbins in the 1950s, Paint by Numbers kits were a cultural phenomenon that was embraced by millions of aspiring artists. A cross between a coloring book and a painting, these kits enabled even a novice painter to become a fine artist. The concept was inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci, who used numbered patterns on canvas to teach his apprentices how to paint. Through these kits, Robbins made painting accessible to all, ‘Every man a Rembrandt’ as the packaging said.
This 1000 piece, 20" x 27" (50.8 x 68.6 cm) rectangular puzzle is a tropical landscape with palm trees along a rocky beach. The original kit titled ‘Sunset Lagoon’ contained 24 oil colors which made it among the more simplified of the kits. Some of the paints were applied thinly which adds a soft texture not typically seen in Paint by Numbers.
The difficulty level of this puzzle is hard. The large number of colors and small details of the painting make this puzzle a satisfying challenge.
