Puzzle review

Standard

I do love doing a good puzzle

and to my joy I was invited to do a puzzle review

by Debra from TSS blog.

A puzzle is very relaxing and I really enjoy it.

 

the secretary (7)

Here it is:

“The Secretary” is a 500 piece premium puzzle. As you open the box you find the 500 pieces securely in a bag also an additional A4 picture of the puzzle picture, so you don’t need use the box with you to complete it. Also included is the artist’s biography and information about the Ravensburger Company.

The picture is a drawing by Trevor Mitchell of a secretary busily at work in a 1960s office. Trevor Mitchell who after attending Art College in Bradford worked for an advertising agency in London in 1979. He then returned to his native Yorkshire where he went freelance. He illustrated greeting cards and found a market for his paintings among publishers of art prints and jigsaw puzzles.

The Secretary drawing is a very detailed picture and the colours are vibrant. As an avid puzzler I would recommend this puzzle for beginners, young people or someone with little patience.  Starting with the frame and sorting the remaining pieces into colours this puzzle is fairly easy. The picture has clear lines to follow (the window frame, the doorframe) and many different objects like the coffee tray, the filing cabinet and the 5 plants which can be assembled separately and then put into the big picture.  It is like looking at a puzzle piece and you know instantly where it goes in the big picture.

Now that a bit of holiday comes I will chill out with another one.

A cup of hot chocolate when you needed it?

Did you spot a flower coming through?

We had some wonderfully crisp cold mornings

with amazing blue sky and sunshine.

Beautiful evening lights reflecting on the little lake (on my way to dance lessons.)

The birds are singing their arias from the trees in the mornings.
