I should say color by numbers though. This past week that I have been gone I have been working and working on the color by numbers! Seeing as I can't draw to save my life the color by numbers comes in handy. It is hard to get all the details down but over all easy.
I would say that you should buy the color by numbers that they have and don't use the paint one. Because it is harder to color on the canvas. I'm in the middle of painting one I will post it later! (Sorry so short not much more to say about this subject I will post again soon!)
