Customers’ paintings and what they say

dog portrait oil painting paint by numbers

Just wanted to let you see how I got on with my dogs painting by numbers portrait after finally completing it. I was so pleased with the result that I had it professionally framed, and I have had many compliments on it. Having lost him in February this year at the age of 14 it will be a lovely reminder of him.

A photo of my completed painting of my beautiful Rosa. I am so pleased with this, it’s my first attempt at painting and I was so delighted with the result. The whole process was incredibly helpful in dealing with the grief of losing her.

A lovely paint by numbers pet portrait of this cute Jack Russel

‘Please see attached image of the finished, framed picture of Charlie, our family pet, enjoying the sun. I really enjoyed doing it and the likeness is stunning.  It’s the first time I’ve worked with oils. Everyone who sees the finished picture is super impressed with my newfound portrait skills 😊. 
I’ve just passed your details to a friend.’
Ken in Dudley, UK


paint by numbers of Dalmatian
Here is the finished and framed painting, which is hanging in our house.  I truly enjoyed working on it, the activity was perfect for those long and lonely days during the pandemic shut-down.  Thank you for doing what you do, so that I could spend some more time with my sweet and unfortunately departed Dalmatian friend.

This is my first painting – it took longer than expected but I’m glad I spent time on getting the detail right! I loved my first paint by numbers and would like to get another made as a gift for Christmas.

Scamp the Jack Russell had a piece of tape in his mouth in the original photo which we removed and then created this cheeky black and white pet portrait.

I love your painting kits! The picture of my parents turned out great – they now think I’m some talented artist despite me explaining that it is painting by numbers!

A paint by numbers of Hever Castle
I have absolutely enjoyed every minute of doing it and now just to frame it, and you were right the paint does go a long way! I will definitely be getting another one soon!

A paint by numbers of Hever Castle
I can hardly believe this is a paint by numbers … And I made the painting kit! Our regular customer explains how he ended up with such an amazing painting of Hever Castle…
…Please see the attached pic of my recent painting.
As you know I like to tinker and work the painting until i’m satisfied. Spent weeks painting the pond grass and all the trees as per my original pic. The castle I painted was almost completed brick by brick.Hope you like it.
Chris, in Blackpool UK
We won’t pretend that everyone can reach this level of painting detail and accuracy but our painting kits do really help!

I have really enjoyed all the kits. I’m not an artist but but find painting great fun and love the results. Your customer service is excellent – prompt and well organised and the kits are amazing and enable a non-artist like me to produce paintings I never thought possible. I’m working on Whistlejacket and planning the next one! Thank you for this wonderful hobby. I really like working with oils as they are so easy to use and I get a great result every time.

paint by numbers of bearded collie pet portrait
My son gave me the kit as a present, having just finished it here is the end result. A great big thank you to all who made this possible. Our beardie is now getting to be an old boy as he is 12 years old, it is great to have a lasting image of him. It was a relaxing to do, can I even say great for mindfulness thanks, Carol

Custom painting by numbers kit held by customer who painted it
‘So … Here’s the finished portrait at last. I am so thrilled with the end result and everyone who has seen it  has remarked on what a brilliant idea this is. It really doesn’t look like a ‘painting by numbers’ kit. In fact, two friends thought it was an enlarged photograph. I loved doing it and shall be doing another, without any doubt. Thank you.’

Customer's memorial painting by numbers portrait of parents
‘This was a hard picture to paint in the sense both mum and dad passed away last year. I could not believe how well this came out, the look on people’s faces when they saw it, and I said painted it was priceless. So life like. Customer Services is better than exellent, they seem to bend over backwards to help, thank you so much.’
Wendy J, Port Talbot

I just wanted to thank you for setting up my painting for me! It’s always been my favourite picture of my horse. I never dreamed I could paint it! It’s perfect. I will be in touch soon for my next one! Much thanks

our customer painted her two labradors using our unique paint by numbers kits
My kit is truly spectacular, the detail is immense and the results are out of this world. I am seriously addicted!

I've finished my Painted by You kit (of two Utonagana dogs).
‘I’ve finished my Painted by You kit (of two Utonagana dogs). I’m so pleased with how it looks. Can’t wait to get it framed. Such a fantastic way to keep memories alive. I can’t stop looking at it! Wonderful service from beginning to end.’
Tracey F, Staffs
personalised paint by numbers of Albert the bull dog
‘Thought you may like to see how my Albert painting turned out. I am so pleased with it, far outweighs my expectations. The biggest complaint came from my mother in law, who has been known to do a bit of painting herself. When I showed it to her she laughed and said “that’s a photograph” I will be back to you soon to order another picture as I really enjoyed this one. Thanks for everything’
Alan J, Staffs
customer holding finished oil painting portrait painted by numbers
‘Took me one full day to complete my masterpiece. I just couldn’t put the paint brush down. It was so addictive once I got going!’

customised oil paint by numbers of two friends. "relaxing and fun to paint".

“I did one of these ages ago and I had forgotten how relaxing and how much fun they are to paint. I gave the finished painting to my friend for her birthday – she loves it!’
Ruby, South London

tango portrait painted by numbers
It’s what I would call strangely addictive, once you begin to paint you just don’t want to stop because all those little lines and spaces begin to transform and it all starts to make sense. I’m really pleased with it, I think Toms’ parents will love it.’ (Original photo credit Ivo Chauveau).
Kate Allen, London
“I don’t know what I am going to do with my spare time now… It was really therapeutic and very addictive!!! I am sure you will be hearing from me in the future. Here is my finished, framed painting… Ian loves it (thank goodness)! Thank you again for a thoroughly enjoyable project.”
Tracey F, East Sussex
Well what can I say! I can’t tell you how much fun I had doing this! It’s totally addictive! As I was painting I was running through all the other photos that I could paint, and who I could do them for! I happily lost hours and hours as they just disappeared into the painting!’
Julia in Copenhagen

“My husband loved the kit I bought him for Christmas… I have also passed on your name to a work colleague and I will order a kit for my mums dog. Thanks!”
This painting kit is amazing! You get 40 colours, three brushes in different thicknesses, the sheet and a zoomed sheet of the face. This zoomed sheet is perfect, so you can see all the little details. It took me four days to finish the painting. After one week it was dry to touch. There is so many colour left in each tube that it would easily be possible to paint another one. I totally fell in love with this painting! Vermeer was a brilliant painter! Thank you for bringing this beautiful painting on my wall! This is genius
