Just Completed My First Paint by Numbers 🎨 🏫

1 Material
7 Days
Recently, I had been feeling the need to fill the huge blank wall in our living room with some lovely professional paintings. So I went to the local art store to get some good quality artworks. Even though the paintings were super beautiful but they were also SUPER expensive. Since I was on a tight budget it made me wish if I too could paint on such a master level. But since we are living in the DIY age, I thought, there MUST be a DIY method to hack this.

Got my Painting kit from Ilovediyart.com and here is how this simple method goes:
The canvas looks somewhat like a puzzle with tiny sections spread across it. Each section is numbered with a color code. These numbers correspond to some color on your painting palette. For example, navy blue equals 2, lime yellow equals 7, black 3, and so on. You start by filling in each section like this (I have filled the top left corner for you to see how the coding works):
So you continue adding more colors from section to section following the color-coded numbers: 
Slowly and gradually, the entire painting will start to reveal itself almost ‘miraculously’, which might be one of the most exciting yet wonderful feeling ever. I have never ever had this much good results with any painting. Below are the rest of the pictures of my work in progress:
And lastly the final look! icon
It was a lot of fun doing painting with numbers. If you are someone who is looking for a similar solution to your art needs as I was, I HIGHLY recommend trying out one of the art kits from i love diy art. This could be one of the coolest things you ever tried. And you will have complete bragging rights of making a total masterpiece of an art.
