# 45 The teak tree

Another 20 min challenge! Sitting in the hotel room on my recent trip to the foothills of the Himalayas in Assam 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 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!

Nice, Brinda! I love the loose style and your perspective is good also!

I too like your looser style! You're getting really good at these 20 minute challenges. Nicely done, Brinda!

It's a facinating experiece to just jump in and paint, isn't it. I think our subconscience knows more than we give it credit for.

You captured a lot in 20 minutes!

...love the freedom of this one...and the bold colors! You should definitely use the style more often!
