Review: Canvas

Canvas
Canvas – Cloudberries – 1000 pieces

It was no surprise to me that I absolutely loved this puzzle, the image is so different from the “normal” puzzle pictures that you usually see of countrysides, cats, and collages. I love that it’s unusual and colorful, and it made for a challenging but thoroughly entertaining assembly. (My apologies for the slightly wonky picture – I am obviously not Ansel Adams!)

Cloudberries is a newer puzzle company with a small catalog of interesting images, and I have found the quality to be excellent. The pieces are a good thickness, with a good variety of shapes, and fit together well. The image reproduction is stellar, with bright colors, sharp lines, and no areas with fuzzy or blurred images.

There are more ballerinas (2 prong/2 hole) than anything other shape, but that’s usually the case with most puzzle companies. It was a bit of a pain when I got to the all white pieces, but didn’t bother me with the colored areas at all.

Canvas 1

The color wheel was the first thing I assembled and I really love the look of it (that it had words was a bonus!)

Canvas 2

The darker of the two globes had me spinning my wheels for a bit, but I got it done in the end. I work under artificial light and it was hard to distinguish the right pieces and where the lines were. It looks pretty darned cool though! I absolutely loved this image; it’s so unusual and colorful, and much more interesting to assemble than a landscape. (At least it was for me.)

Canvas 3

You can see in the upper right corner where it looks “dirty” for lack of a better word. It’s part of the image, but was a little confusing at first. I thought the box was a little dirty in places too, but it’s part of the “Canvas” image. On the plus side, it did make it easier with the white pieces. 😉

I adored this puzzle; the assembly was entertaining and interesting, with just the right amount of challenge. I definitely recommend you give Cloudberries puzzles a try if you have the chance. They have some fantastic images in their catalog, and they make a great puzzle! 🌦🍒👍

  1. Nice to have finally found a perfect jigsaw puzzle blog. Thanks about that. It gave me the good motivation to puzzle again (5 x 1000 pieces this week) :-).

    I love the Canvas Puzzle has all gradient puzzles and the colors are 😍.

    I wish you long life to your passion and your blog.

    Ps : Sorry for my poor English 😦
    Ps 2 : Except the 40k Disney pieces puzzle, have you any articles about jigsaw puzzles above 1000 pieces ?

    1. I’ve done some puzzles that are 2000 pieces, and maybe a few 1500 pieces too. You can use the search bar on the right side of the page to find them.

      I’m glad the blog has motivated you to puzzle again, it motivates me too! I have to keep going to have something to post. 😉

      Your English is just fine and perfectly understandable. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words. ❤
