Oliver's Island Winter Sunrise - stages 1,2 & 3

Stage 1
I have now moved on to the next one in this short series of paintings of the same location in different lighting conditions, time of day and season. The first two have been cold in colour so I thought I would paint one in warmer ones, in this case sunrise. It's based around a blue/green - red/orange colour complementary.
Please go to earlier posts for information on the location in West London.
The first stage, the Tonal Underpainting was painted first with a small bristle brush and then with a rag using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin.
I added colour in the second stage using mixes of Prussian Blue, Naples Yellow, Permanent Orange, Lead Tin Yellow Lemon and Warm White - all Michael Harding paints.
The third stage used the above colours plus the addition of Permanent Sap Green with which I roughed in the Island and water etc.
Stage 2

Stage 3
