Simple Steps to Roses and Castles

Looking to explore the world of narrow boat decorative painting? ‘Simple Steps to Roses and Castles’ is a beginner’s guide written by Shirley and Maurice Ginger, who used to run a shop at Buckby Top Lock in the 1980s. Shirley even painted Buckby cans for sale! The guide also includes stunning colour photographs by their daughter, Stephanie Ginger.

The painted narrowboats, adorned with swags of roses, romantic castles, and bold geometric designs, showcase a remarkable display of popular art from the 19th century. Passed down from generation to generation of painters, this art form continues to captivate and fascinate even after two centuries, thanks to its enduring beauty and dramatic appeal. It is an art that is simple to start and this guide gives step-by-step instructions.
