A very good product, highly recommended.
on 13 February 2016
Although the colours of the sky are very different in the finished product this was a very good in many other ways. Firstly 20 different good quality paints are supplied and each of the pots are full. The number of pots mean less mixing and there is a lot of each left after finishing the picture to use on another painting. Also the board is printed in a pale blue rather than a much darker shade so the numbers and lines are covered more easily. I tried sets by other manufacturers after this one (this was my first attempt) and I will always go for Reeves after my experiences.
I managed to blend in the sky rather than leave it as the instructions so that looks very natural. The birds look very realistic and with character and the flowers seem to leap out of the page.
This has taught me a lot about handling the paint and how many different shades work together to give a realistic but artistic effect. This will be helpful when I want to move onto my own compositions. I recommend this product highly and would warn people against buying inferior makes as some sets contain little paint and heavily printed boards.
