Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

The border was a little tricky due to the shaped pieces but once it was assembled I started with the blue sky. Luckily there was not a massive amount of blue sky area and the puzzle piece shapes assisted with issue.

I had sorted all the 'text' pieces that were in the image into one area on the board so they were assembled next and placed into the approximate area in the image. the Ceramic plates hanging on the outside of the Ceramica store wall were slow to come together. The green doors, bluish windows and orange borders were done easily enough.

The cobble walkway/road went much easier than I had anticipated and once again the puzzle shapes assisted that area. That left the buildings with the pipes and wires until only the darkest brown areas were left - which turned out to be ok outside of the red/creamy bricks on the walls and the archway.

Comments...

The matte finish is always nice on these puzzles.  Cobble Hill jigsaw puzzles continues to come out with some really awesome images and this is one of their new 2018 productions.

It also comes with the box size poster for those with more than one person doing the puzzle or prefer using a poster.

I highly recommend this jigsaw puzzle for the lovely image by the Artist  - H. Hargrove  Click on his name to visit his website. The images below speak for themselves. This also appears to be a wonderful tourist area to visit. This image sells for $825.00 if you were to buy it as a wall painting and it's titled LOra Di Pranzo- Lunchtime Click the link to see it. We are extremely lucky to recreate it in a jigsaw puzzle format. A beauty indeed!

The above jigsaw puzzle(s) have been added to my Puzzle Hobby Tracker 

I am in the process of recording all my past jigsaw puzzles that I still have for my walls and all my current puzzles.

Then I have the TO DO list that I am adding from my collection.
