Detail - Door Knocker 2 - Watercolour

A 16x16cms detail of pencil drawing. Done on Dalbe rag paper - Satine - 300gms. Awful to use as some of you are already aware! Saw my work in 'better light'! this morning and decided to carry on. For better or for worse?

Absolutely beautiful! You can really feel the grain of the wood. Amazing how you can make a door knocker seem so alive and interesting.

Your control over watercolour is enviable and if you had trouble with the paper it certainly doesn't show. A lovely addition to your gallery. Many thanks for your tips on my recent posting, very much appreciated.

I knew without even seeing your name! I think your best yet. That wood is absolutely amazing. The grain is really three dimensional.
