I am preparing a “relaunch” of my YouTube channel Art By Annamarie. To get it going, I am going to start with a new painting challenge series. If you want to join in with this, please join my new Facebook group Art By Annamarie’s Big Painting Challenge.
I have also recently setup a new Facebook page just for art and a new Instagram account. It would be great if you can follow me on both of these platforms.

If you have been following my adventures on the narrowboat this year, you will know that Kath and I are now travelling the UK by canal full time. We thought that it would be a great time to become part of the wonderful network of Canal Traders.

In this weeks video, I show you how to paint a narrowboat using watercolour on canvas.
I used a small canvas board similar to this one http://amzn.to/2oolVo3
This week I share with you the process I use to paint a cat using watercolour.
In part three of the series I created to show the process of painting dragonflies and a narrowboat in watercolour paint, I show you how to add the narrowboat to the painting.
If you are following along with this series, I would love to see your attempts. Please share them with me on Twitter (twitter.com/NarrowboatExp) or Instagram (instagram.com/nbexperience).
In part four which is also the final part of the series, I add some finishing touches to the picture. If you would like to purchase a print of this painting, it is available to buy now in the shop.
I’m having so much fun with my new channel and I really want you to be able to join in. So, I’ve put together a list of equipment that I use to help get you started.
This is just the equipment that I use and isn’t a rule book. You can create with all types of things- it’s really about the practise more than the product.
I have put links in to the products below the video.
Canvas brush holder
This gorgeous heavy duty canvas brush holder is great for protecting brushes.
I also found one that includes brushes. I haven’t tried them myself but it looks like good value: http://amzn.to/2mXYfoi
Windsor & Newton Watercolour Paint
These are the paints that I use. I recommend this kit as a starter kit that you can take to the beach or on holidays because it travels really well. I use these colours as a base for all of my paintings.
Windsor & Newton Watercolour Paper
This is the watercolour paper that I use and I can thoroughly recommend it. If you do find a cheaper one you might want to use it as practise paper though.
Water Colour Paint Brushes
These are the paintbrushes that I use and they are not cheap, but they are exactly what I need for the detail and coverage that I get. They are durable and look the same as the day I first got them.
