New Zealand artist paints new puzzles for Holdsons

 Temuka artist Bob Darroch, who has again collaborated with New Zealand puzzle company Holdson to create two new jigsaw puzzles for his collection. The first puzzle (1000 pieces) depicts a scene of chaos, and once that is completed, the second puzzle (200 pieces) shows what happened behind the scenes.
Mr Darroch sketches several ideas on thin paper. Using a lightbox, he puts the pieces together and traces a rough copy. Once happy with the rough, the final is transferred to watercolour paper and colour added. It takes about six weeks from start to finish.
You can read more about these new puzzles here.
