Beautiful image to look at while I figured out which pieces went where. The shapes are straight forward, but with colors that are the same in different areas, it was a great and wonderful challenge!
Whether you are a Renoir/Impressionist lover or not, you will have enjoyment with this puzzle. It is not easy, but with patience you can do it. I sorted and sorted and sorted and finally put the last pieces in shape order and sorted more. I did enjoy this one.
I finally gave up on it. However, I passed it along to a friend who is a whiz at jigsaw puzzles and he sent me a picture of the finished puzzle.
Renoir at its best
Very enjoyable.....and challenging.
Really lovely thick pieces that snapped together well — but my favorite part was that the pieces were MATTE so there was not an issue of glare. Did this one with 2 friends in about 8 hours—we picked a 500-piece specifically to take with us and complete on a weekend getaway. Perfect for our trip. There was one piece out of all 500 that had a little smushed edge but otherwise it was perfect.
The puzzle itself and it's container were delivered on perfect shape and the puzzle itself has been very challenging for us due to the blended watercolors - not a complaint, just an observation. We're enjoying it!
One of the hardest puzzle I have ever worked on. Still working on it.
This one was difficult because all the blues were so close together in color. It was a challenge.
Very difficult, piece by piece puzzle. High quality, beautiful art reproduction .
Glad to have great art to work on. I learned a lot about how Renoir paints by studying his brush strokes in putting the puzzle together. Fascinating.
beautiful, fun to study as I did it. took a while , days to do
