Heron on the lake at Sunrise, yellow landscape watercolour


Heron on the lake at Sunrise is the second painting of a heron on the lake.  In contrast, yellow hues make up this painting, rather than pinks and purples.  It is one of a series of  Atmospheric Watercolours using limited palettes.


I created the background of Heron on the lake at Sunrise by building up layers of paint in many washes, hence creating a smooth transition from yellows to oranges and browns.


My walks around Heron Pond in Bushy Park, inspired this painting.

Bushy Park is in South West London, especially beautiful at sunrise and sunset. In addition, it is a wonderful and very open place to walk and is great for wildlife – from herds of deer, numerous species of birds and ancient woodlands and winding waterways.

Aims of the painting

The elegant heron symbolises stillness, confidence and harmony, complimenting the mood of the setting. Consequently, this painting brings peace and serenity to any room. 

If you would prefer a smaller painting with pinks and purples , you may like Heron on the Lake in Pink no.2 or Heron on the Lake in Pink.
