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. 

As you can see in the sorting, there are not many defined colors to be seen clearly. This type of artwork is quite visible with brush strokes on the close up view and much clearer when seen from a distance.

Some of the warm lights in the houses and church blend with some areas of the pinkish sky and reflections in the snow at the the bottom.

I did not refer much to the image itself but relied more heavily on the shapes of the pieces. That said, this was a case of the image magically appearing as more pieces found their places. 

I started with the snowman, fences, lights in buildings, street lights, the buildings and church steeple.

The frames of the buildings were tricky, the steps and street snow was tricky, the green trees with lights were tricky and the sky was tricky.

Normally a 500 piece jigsaw puzzle would not take 12 hours.

Comments

Note the close up photo to the right how visible the brush strokes are yet the image just below shows how clearly the buildings, vehicle and street lights can be seen.

Robert Finale is the Artist of this delightful and enchanting image. He shares his lifelong work as an artist around the world and is certainly worth taking a look at.

Shipping has it's drawbacks too. I am not exactly sure how the puzzle got 'injured' inside the box as the outside of the shipping box does not appear to be damaged at all. The Springbok jigsaw puzzle box lids are quite sturdy so quite a jab would have to imply a dent like that.

It's Christmas in July with the Springbok's White Christmas jigsaw puzzle. They recently sent it to me for review. It's quite helpful to have the random-shape pieces cut for artwork such as this because it makes the jigsaw puzzle experience enjoyable.

I am very pleased to add this one to my completed collection and I highly recommend it to those who enjoy just a little extra challenge - but not too much!

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.
