Shiny brass door knocker.

A lot of door knockers are made from brass. Some are iron. Brass is a very special metal. It has a golden lustre when polished and expresses wealth, a friendly glow and a welcoming feel. I painted this one which was very shiny and I liked particularly the contrast of the smooth hand and the uneven and textured antique wooden door. I just used watercolours on Arches paper.
