I have painted lots of paint by numbers kits and this one happens to be one of my favorites. They provided a reference guide (extremely helpful), enough gray paint pots to complete the background and the colors were true to the image. Not to mention, the image is stunning. Great company, great kit and beautiful outcome.
As pictured, there is a grey gradient in the background, but there is not enough paint for this (I think), and you mainly just paint in the shells, vase, and orchid. The coloring on the painting is much more precise than expected but provides a formidable challenge.
