#2 The banyan tree at Tolly
The Tollygunge Club in Kolkata has a golf course with the most amazing trees. I painted this picture for my husband Viveck's 60th birthday a few days ago. This is a very grand old Banyan and Viveck always says how wonderful it is to see it in its many moods. The banyan never totally loses its leaves, although the leaf cover definitely gets thin in the winter. This is the tree in Spring when a lot of new leaves have come through! I loved painting this picture. The challenge was in trying to capture the magnificence of the tree with its hanging roots, the tiny golfers near it, the many shades of green and the brightness of a summer day!
