His room is blue, red and navy with a train and nautical theme so wanted 2-3 small wall canvases but all the ones Ive seen are tacky or a little babyish for him - any suggestions

This might not appeal and I don't know if you were talking about just painted canvas but I'm going to make my own. I was about to buy one but my mother, who is heavily into card making informed me that places like Hobbycraft are full to bursting with lovely things to stick on a painted canvas.

You can get canvases or prints of old ladybird books, the smallest is A4 so that might suit? There are some lovely ones of old cars, look under the transport heading.
I like the one of the old dear hoovering the train seats in "On the Railways" .

They might be a bit grown-up / expensive for what you're after though

Take three photos of him - one each in a red, blue, navy top then get them printed onto canvas by Truprint or someone like that!

does it have to be canvases? Ive got one of these metal wall signs for my ds's room -he loves it and it looks really nice. You can get different designs
