# 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!
