• Short Summary

    Girl demonstrates how to paint a scene using colours that correspond to numbers on a picture.

  • Description

    London.

    A young woman enters a room and sits down to paint a picture, "using the latest painting set on the market" - painting by numbers!

    Several shots of her dipping her paintbrush in the different numbered paints and painting the corresponding number pieces on her picture. When she has finished the Mexican desert scene (complete with cactus) she hangs it on the wall, alongside other pictures that were painted by numbers too.

    C/Us of other finished 'painting by numbers' pictures - some are pretty bad, like the white kittens and the frisky horse.

    Note: news cutting on file about this latest craze from America. Most popular scene was clipper ship; least popular, nude with shawl (no sex please... ).
