Customers’ paintings and what they say!

‘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.’

Susan D, Bradford, West Yorks

‘This was a hard picture to paint in the sense both mum and dad passed away last year 2016. 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

‘Teddie is at last finished and framed. Thought you might like to have a photo. We have another black dog so I may be back to you quite soon for a kit to paint her. Many thanks again.’
Lucy M, East Sussex

I absolutely loved my kit! It was such a labour of love, as I was painting a picture of my two sons for my parents, but I found the process really relaxing. I’m already planning my next one!

Sarah R, Surrey

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’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

‘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

‘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!’

Karen xx

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

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!”
Deborah

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

Our lovely customer Donna sent us a photo taken at a wedding
We made a sepia kit for her to paint. We think she did a great job!
