Teddington Lock at sunrise , watercolour


Teddington Lock at Sunrise captures the tranquil beauty of the early morning scene. The sun, still low on the horizon, bathes everything in a gentle light of yellows and oranges.

Teddington Lock, constructed in 1811, stands proudly amidst the serene setting at the lowest lock on the Thames. Therefore, it regulates the river’s flow, enabling navigation through its gates.

The colours blend seamlessly in Teddington Lock at Sunrise, creating an atmosphere of serenity and calmness. Additionally, the soft hues of yellow and orange evoke a sense of warmth and comfort, giving the viewer a feeling of peace. The water reflects the delicate colours of the sky, shimmering softly as it flows past the lock.

Amidst this tranquil scene, nearby trees and foliage are touched by the first rays of sunlight. Consequently, more depth and dimension is added to the composition. It’s a quiet moment frozen in time, inviting the viewer to pause and appreciate the simple beauty of a morning’s sunrise.

Skating in the Moonlight, Sunrise over the Stream, Heron on the lake at Sunrise, are other similar examples of atmospheric watercolours available.
