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 not as tricky as I thought it might be due to the minium colors in this image. There seems to be about 4 colors but in several different shades. I wasn't even sure how to tackle this one so I decided to go from light to dark. I  ended up starting with the cat's white parts on her face, then the white shades on the puppy's body.

I really wrestled with the orange/brown of the cat and the brown/orange background - it was really tough but had 3 distinguished patterns to the pieces...certainly not outstanding patterns though.

Having mostly greens left meant the dark paw colors were more outstanding and seemed to be the easiest part of the puzzle being a smaller amount too.

When the pieces are laid out it's helpful in seeing the shades but as it builds it is not easy to see the images forming until you step away from it.

Comments...

It seemed at times - and that would be many times in this particular puzzle, that the pieces just fell into place. I felt like I was getting lucky the pieces were fitting where they were fitting. I was actually surprised but pleasantly that is - cause it increased the enjoyment of the puzzle.

This being a Thrift store purchase, I am so very pleased all the pieces are available which is always like a little bonus. The images below share the great quality and fit of the pieces, not to mention the 'aaaahhhh' factor of this picture.

I highly recommend Clementoni jigsaw puzzles. The Truce looks to be tricky in colors and shades but I was pleasantly surprised at the overall experience so you may be too. 

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.
