Explore the benefits of a paint by numbers kit
A typical paint by numbers kit contains a drawing or picture that has been divided into shapes and marked with a number to correspond to a particular colour or shade. By painting each shape as directed, when finished, you'll have a completed painting. The benefit to this approach is it helps you start to visualise the way a painting is simply a collection of different colours and shapes that don't necessarily make sense individually but are an important part of the whole image.
A paint by numbers approach helps you start to analyse the subject of your art and break it up into its respective colour shapes. You're encouraged to stop focusing on the end product and start looking at the individual components to create the end product. Apparently even Leonardo da Vinci used a form of paint by numbers, where he assigned assistants to paint areas of his work that he had already sketched and numbered. Typically a kit will come with the image either on paper or canvas, paints, and a brush. You may prefer to use your own brushes or paints if you have these.
