Painting by numbers is more than just an artistic activity; it is a meditative journey that helps many relax and disconnect from the stresses of everyday life. It transforms a blank canvas into a masterpiece, one careful brushstroke at a time. But as with any experience, the atmosphere can be greatly influenced by the environment. The right background sounds or images can make a world of difference, deepen concentration and enrich the experience.


Podcasts are the modern version of radio shows and are a great way to fill your mind with stories, facts and discussions while you paint. They can put you in a trance-like state, where your hand and the brush move in sync with the rhythms of the voice you hear. Recommended genres include true crime (for those who like mysteries), history (to delve into different times), art and culture (for a meta experience), and interviews (to learn from different perspectives).


Music has the power to evoke emotions and can serve as a catalyst for creativity. The tones of a classical piece, the smooth rhythms of jazz or the soothing harmonies of ambient music can provide the perfect backdrop for your painting sessions. For those looking for specific musical recommendations, Rivierenland Radio is a great source of diverse and engaging choices.

Nature sounds

Nothing brings us closer to a state of inner peace than the sounds of nature. The soothing patter of rain, the rhythmic sound of waves crashing against the shore, or the cheerful song of birds can transform a painting session into an almost meditative experience. There are countless apps and websites available that offer a library of these sounds, ready to take you on a sonic journey into nature.

Inspirational videos

Visual stimuli can have a powerful influence on our creativity. Watching calming videos of landscapes, following travel vlogs that take you to exotic destinations, or observing art demonstrations can inspire new ideas and techniques. These videos not only help to improve techniques, but also to stimulate the imagination.


For those who love stories, audiobooks can be the perfect companion while painting. You can lose yourself in a fictional story or gain new knowledge with a non-fiction book, all while your brush glides across the canvas. There are countless genres available, from fantasy to biographies, and platforms like Audible offer an extensive collection to choose from.


Choosing the right audio or visual background can enrich and deepen the paint-by-numbers experience. Whether you choose the rhythms of music, the stories of podcasts and audiobooks, or the soothing tones of nature, the most important thing is to find what works best for you. Each individual is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. That’s why it’s essential to experiment and find your own perfect background.
