Sunrise in the Lawns oil painting (2)

I have completed the oil painting Sunrise in the Lawn that I started on site in August on location in one of the parks in Swindon (Wiltshire). You can read the account of this plein air session here.

I then worked on this painting in the studio from the memory I had of the light in the early hours of the morning. I used glazes to give depth to the sky, give more definition to the tree leaves and capture the golden light of the sun both on the trees and on the dry grass.
