You won't find a (live) dog sitting in the middle of the road these days. Maybe soon, with the price of petrol...
This is a lovely picture, gently redolent of summer days in the fifties. Not especially recommended for superannuated second childhood punters with backache however. You need a table at least twice the area of the finished article, I would say. Craning over then does the back in. Also I would suggest that twice the pieces means four times the search time. Be sure you have the possibility of a long term table availability, and no cat. Small children should be locked out in the garden.
This jigsaw comes with a full box-width picture on the back, as well as one on the front, which is a help. The building in shade on the left is dark and a bit tricky, and the top half of the sky is a challenge. I nearly gave up. These Gibsons pieces have rather subtle variations and one needs to develop a sensitive feel; and get new spectacles. Experts please ignore my comments,I'm just a beginner.
