Your painting by number with your own photo

You’re probably wondering why you should order your own photo and what the benefits are. Luckily, we have a large collection of experiences from customers who have gone before you. Based on their feedback, we have listed the advantages of your own photo for you.

What does it mean to paint your own picture?

Painting by number is becoming increasingly popular. It consists of a canvas divided into different areas. There is a series of these areas. These numbers correspond to the colour of the paint. Once you have coloured the areas with the paint, you will get the final result. The lines will eventually become invisible. As a painter, the next step is to discover the colour shapes yourself. A painting of your own can orient even a painter with little experience. You get an education, so to speak, so that you can later create your own painting.

This technique allows you to analyse the subject you want to paint and test the colour palette when you create your own painting. However, this is not a new phenomenon. The painter Leonardo da Vinci had developed a method for his assistants to paint the areas he had drawn and numbered.

Paint your own painting

Paint your own painting

When you make a painting from your own photo, it works particularly motivating. Because you are working with a memory. It makes you enjoy it more because you get connected to yourself and your loved ones. It is a personal work of art that gradually unfolds before your eyes. The results will be extraordinary. So what are the benefits of a painting with your own photo on it?

Suitable for young and old, beginners or experienced painters.

You can choose which size you want. We also have painting sets for beginners in our range. These sets are ideal for beginners who have never or only just taken up a brush. There are also more difficult paintings for more advanced painters looking for a fun challenge. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced painter, this ready-made set will get you started right away. It is up to you which painting you choose and how difficult the painting is. Everything is a personal choice.

Ready to use sets; you can start right away

In the package you receive, you get a ready to use set. So you can get started right away. Beginning painters often struggle to find, buy and put together a good paint kit. This in turn poses an obstacle. Looking at which colors, sizes and brushes are most suitable can also take a long time. You can avoid all this by ordering a painting by number set directly.

You can paint right away

Making a list to buy what you need is just the beginning. Once you have what you need, start preparing. If you are not an expert, preparing a canvas can seem like a daunting task. The edges need to be clearly defined. You need to prime and stretch the canvas with a stretcher. Brushes and acrylic paint also need to be prepared. In short, it takes a lot of time and even more effort. No appetite for this? Then mainly go for a ready-made kit, consisting of:

– a canvas primed
– with acrylic paint in the right shade
– and brushes suitable for this canvas.

Order the custom painting set with 24 or 36 colours.
