The size of the painting by numbers

Yes, size is one of the factors that will determine the difficulty of painting by numbers.

The best size for a painting by numbers is 16x20"/40x50cm, canvases with this size are ideal for beginners, juniors and senior painters.

16x20"/40x50cm canvas is perfect for all types of artists, you can hang the final piece in your living room, office or game room. It will give the room some character and warmth without drawing too much attention.


In addition, you can finish the entire painting in less than a day. Obviously, the total time depends on the dedication, the time and how detailed it is. But it won't take as much time and effort as the bigger screens.
