Picked up my brush, walked on the lawn
with lively pace at crack of dawn.
A smart young driver, headlamps on,
some lucent colours I have drawn.

How would you describe me?

Hint:

My brush has a specific shape.

Hint #2:

My headlights are extremely luminous.

I would describe you as

bright

Picked up my brush, walked on the lawn, with lively pace at crack of dawn.

Bright is a brush shape which is short with a flat tapering bristle head.

On a lawn (green) may refer to bright green environmentalism based on the belief that technology and social innovation provides the best path for sustainable development.
Poetically Maya Angelou’s Caged Bird has the words 'on a dawn bright lawn'.

Bright meaning lively, it's bright at dawn, and the idiom bright and early.

A smart young driver, headlamps on, some lucent colours I have drawn.

Bright meaning smart and a bright young thing.
A driver with headlamps on refers to brights - the high-intensity beam of vehicle headlamps.
Bright meaning luminous, lucent colours.

Are you:

A line-marking cart? For painting the lines on a playing field?

Picked up my brush, walked on the lawn

Line marking equipment uses a brush to paint the lines onto the grass.

with lively pace at crack of dawn.

Carts allow the painting to be done faster than manually painting the lines, and this work is often done early in the morning before a playing field may be used.

A smart young driver, headlamps on,

I haven't seen carts with headlamps but perhaps they exist? Or maybe this refers to the floodlights on a playing field?

some lucent colours I have drawn.

Normally playing field lines are drawn in lucent, or light reflective colours such as white or yellow.

    $\begingroup$ This actually works really well. The intended answer is a bit less literal and more wordplayey (is that a word?) $\endgroup$ – jafe Nov 11 '18 at 8:29

Are you:

A Firefly?

Picked up my brush, walked on the lawn

Fireflies have a brush-like backside

with lively pace at crack of dawn.

You can spot fireflies flying around until morning

A smart young driver, headlamps on,

They look like flying headlights

some lucent colours I have drawn.

If you look at time-lapses, you can see drawn lines in lucent colors
