I love them. The nice thing about jigsaw puzzles is you can sit (or walk) around a table looking for the right piece and visit with whoever is doing it with you. I used to do them with my sister-in-law. She would have to go home and Then I couldn't walk passed the table w/o looking for a few pieces. I enjoy them but have to make myself get up and move.
I think the color blends are right up your color wheel alley. I'm sure you are enjoying the challenge.
I have a gifted nephew who loved Star Wars when he was young. He's in his 30's now. One year I gave him a puzzle with the Millenium Falcon in the middle flying away. The rest was black. He did it!
Yes, you are correct about the color wheel alley ... that's why I bought it. I have been very happy with it except I am not thrilled about the vast number of chartreuse/yellow pieces looming in my future.
I'm at the half-way point now and once I am done with this puppy I plan to put Contac paper on the back of it and thumbtack it to the wall somewhere in this house.

Saved the best for last? I would preserve it also. Never thought about using Contac paper.
That is what I have used on the backs of a couple of Springbok puzzles (which you can pick up and dangle from your fingers because they interlock so well).
Don't know if this puzzle will be that good at staying interlocked. If it is not I have a way I can put posterboard on the top of the puzzle and then DH can help me flip it over because I have been solving it in my portable tray/carrier thing I bought decades ago at the national jigsaw puzzle championship contest.
Judy, have you ever used the puzzle glue? It works....but it seems just like that mod Pog stuff. Then you don’t have to mess with flipping it over.
wow, it has been a long time since I’ve used that stuff. Dd did the huge dolphin puzzle. It hung in her room forever!
Now here is a real show-off, if you ask me.
I went to the website of the company that produces the "Gradient" jigsaw puzzle just to see what other kinds of puzzles they make. One thing leads to another when you do something like that and I found a YouTube video of a time-lapse solving of my "Rainbow" puzzle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECxkImGlrFg
The company is called Cloudberries and they are in the United Kingdom if you care to look up their other puzzles. Amazon sells a few of their products.
Amazing video! I never start a puzzle from the middle. Under 3 hours! Her brain is different than mine. I've noted the brand. I'll have to try one. Maybe this summer when I stay inside more.
