"To achieve a similar finish on this canal narrow boat model, I started by carefully studying historical references to get the colors right. I chose a palette that reflected the typical hues of these vessels, ensuring I captured the essence of the models used in the canals centuries ago. Having applied a primer, I then used acrylics to paint the hull and details, followed by thin washes to bring out the texture and shadows for depth. Weathering was achieved with a mix of dry brushing and washes to give it that realistic, well-travelled look. Taking my time with the painting process was key to maintain the integrity of the fine details." - Stuart
