"To recreate a similar finish to this canal narrowboat, I started with a solid base coat, ensuring that the paint evenly covered the fine details. I chose a suitable palette to reflect an authentic look, with muted hues for the body and bright accents for the details to highlight features like the cabin. A steady hand was needed to paint the crisp lines and lettering that bring out the character of the boat. A dark wash brought out the texture and lines, giving depth to the wooden planks and metal fixtures. Finally, subtle weathering added a touch of realism, suggesting a vessel that's seen many journeys along the waterways." - Stuart
