"To achieve this level of finish on the canal narrow boat, I started by applying a base coat in a muted, realistic colour palette that reflects the commonly seen colours of actual narrow boats. Subsequent layers of washes and dry-brushing techniques helped to bring out the fine details and texture of the tarpaulin and hull. I used a fine brush for the small details, ensuring that elements like the tiller stand out. It's important to maintain a steady hand and patience for the smaller details, using reference materials as a guide for colours and wear patterns." - Stuart
