Catching up on posting about some puzzles I did a week or so ago- this post and the prior one.
Sadly this puzzle annoyed me. I think I’m realizing I’m not fond of Lang puzzles. I like that the picture has a gentle, airy quality- you can see all the colored pencil strokes- and I don’t mind too much that all the pieces are the same basic shape. But this one also irritated my skin, had a very reflective a surface, and a good fifth to fourth of the picture shown on the box isn’t even on the puzzle! That threw me off when I was putting together the border- looking for what aligned up on the edges, it simply didn’t match at all. Photo below of the box image shows just how much was cropped off the puzzle- I drew a black line to indicate. So the puzzle itself has a crowded look to it, with the bottom of the watering can cut off, wagon wheel up against the edge, and the basket on the left is so minimized you can’t even see the nice subtle weaving texture on it.
There was one edge piece missing, I made a replacement but didn’t quite get the color to match.
Cute image, irksome puzzle
