Teak Tree

Another 20 min challenge! Sitting in the hotel room in Guwahati I decided to paint this teak tree outside the window. I focused on the large leaves and painted straight on to the paper with very wet paints and no drawing.  I didn't think too much about what I was doing but used instinct and used colours as I saw it! It was quick and bold! Not my usual style of painting, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Its a milestone really, as I seem to have  got the perspective of the path, and all this without spending too much time first drawing out the picture! Certainly will try this some more!


  1. I enjoy the 20 min chall. too. This is a good outlook on how to start something different

  2. Well done, Brinda! I wish i had courage to start a painting without pencil sketch..
    Love the easiness of your painting, especially the part of tree trunk and foliage :)

  3. Thanks so much for looking and commenting!
