Sure, back in the 1960s you could get Paint By Numbers sets like the one you see above and not to knock Gainsborough’s Blue Boy of course but by the mid-1980s you could obtain Transformers Paint By Numbers…and be honest with yourself, which would you prefer hanging in your home?
This particular ‘painting’ of Hound is actually mine, one of the treasures I’ve discovered while cleaning out the back bedroom. I think it’s pretty evident I wasn’t real keen on going back to lay on a second layer of paint as you can still see the numbers underneath!
