Here we see the default puzzle in its initial state:
Since the first and last columns as well as the first and last rows are
shown as having 15 cells filled in, we can mark those entire rows
Let's start by looking at row 2 next. In this row we are told that
there are 7 consecutive colored cells followed by one or more
blank cells followed by 7 more colored cells. Since this row
starts end ends with colored cells, we can color in from the sides and
also mark the cells between those two colored ranges as blank.
In rows 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 11 we also see that there are two
groups of colored cells, and can repeat the above tactic again.
In rows 7 and 14 we know that they begin and end with a single
colored cell, and since those are already colored in, we know that the
cells next to them must be left blank.
In rows 10, 12 and 13 we again know how they begin and end, and
even though we have no way of positioning the colored cells between those
we can color the beginning and ending ranges as well as the blank that
must be next to them.
Looking at columns 2 and 14 we see that all ranges specified have
been colored, so any remaining unknown cells can be set to blank.
In columns 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 we can color several of
the cells starting from the bottom of the grid because we know how long
the ending range of colored cell will be. We can also set the cell above
that range to be blank.
From here to the end, it is a matter of looking at the row and
column values as we have been and completing the puzzle.
