Watercolor Painting - 7.5 x 10 inches - Old Corkscrew

Painted an old corkscrew last night.  I am attracted by the wooden handle contrasting with the sharpness of the metal.  It is done on a 7.5 x 10 inches sheet of cold press watercolor paper.  The texture of the wooden handle gave me the most trouble while trying to get the right color and shade in applying the watercolor to it.  The metal part needs lots of patience on painting it and have to leave white area of reflection where necessary.  I also use a dry square oil paint brush to apply dots of color on the metal shaft of the corkscrew as well as on the screw part.  A toothbrush is also use to flick watercolor paint on to the wooden handle to give it an antique effect.
