Painting Allows to Express Yourself

It's not about painting life, it's about making painting live..

Paul Cézanne

Through her paintings, Frida Kahlo was able to literally transform her disability into a work of art, to exalt her real self instead of hiding it, to express, in the same way she lived, that nothing can hinder the inner strength, the freedom of intentions if they are sincere, the beauty outside conventional schemes.

While painting, you are free to express your feelings, emotions and bring on the canvas your thoughts, dreams, hopes, and desires.

Anti- Stress

If they told you that painting influences our standard of living and our physical and mental health, would you believe it?

One of the main and immediate benefits we derive from painting is undoubtedly its action against stress: emotions are free to express themselves through a preferential channel that does not risk bumping into others or being misunderstood.

Painting as the right therapy

Many psychotherapists have verified the beneficial effects of art in helping patients with psychological problems because art in all its expressions fees the subjectivity of the person. Thus, one can resort to the art of painting by numbers to resolve conflicts, communication problems, difficulties in expression and many other psychological aspects.

Paint by Numbers as Therapy

It improves our motor skills

Like when playing a musical instrument, even with the painting by numbers canvas we learn how to adjust the movements of the hand when we handle a brush or pencil and develop brain connections related to this ability. In adults, painting helps improve up-motor skills.

It increases concentration and brain movements

Dedicating oneself to painting requires concentration. Painting is a meticulous job that allows you to forget the environment and to let go, letting time pass without realising it.

With the painting, both the hemispheres of the brain are stimulated, right and left. The left hemisphere has to do with the logical and rational aspect, while the right one is connected to creativity and emotions. It is about freeing the imagination and letting it fly so that even the most profound thoughts can breathe.

How to Paint by numbers 

It’s easy and accessible to everybody: All you have to do is to paint one color at a time inside the lines and also paint outside the lines, starting from the largest area to the smallest. This technique will help you prevent any accidental smudging. Little by little, you’ll learn a technique

Another tip is to start with darkest to light colors or the other way around. This helps you to gain a deeper understanding of the composition, shapes, and shades of colors, color toning and how they affect one another.


Even though you are being guided by the numbers, the canvas numbers are guiding you in a relaxing and non-conformist way.

There’s room to express yourself, there’s a way to use your brain and a strong feeling of accomplishment at the end.

It all depends on you and your vision. You don't have to be afraid to experiment and find your own style.

I got my first paint-by-number as a gift for my 10th birthday: 2 cats! I'm almost 70, and still painting, though the subject matters have changed. I love it--it's relaxing, good for near-sighted people, and can be enjoyed year around. It's also INEXPENSIVE, the icing on the cake!

Paint by numbers made ne realize that there is life in retirement. I am a person that cannot stop working. I found my peace and always sharpen mu mind When I paint by numbers. When people see my paintings, they say “how creative, how talented”. When I tell them I paint by numbers, they take a step back and say”oh”. Its like that was no creativity or talent. When I see this, I Challenge them to be able to do same. This is where they truly realize the effort it takes to paint by numbers. I am on number 7. 2 of my paintings will be given to my adult children to hang in their house. They will be a remembrance to my kids and grand kids of what grandpa did to leave his mark after I pass. I highly recommend this hobby.
