Since I am in my Peacock phase of life I could not wait to do this painting, my 2nd pbn. I was shocked when the background colors were different than the photo. But I enjoyed the result more. I used a 10x magnifying light on the tiny areas, recommend a printed map be included in the kit for ease of reading. Time is not a concern for me, I enjoy the escape from the stress of life that comes from working on these projects!
