# 95 Tree tops

We went to the top floor of a building quite close to where I live. I looked out of the window looking down at the tops of the trees and saw this amazing array of colours, the Gul Mohar trees, a flame really, such vibrant and brilliant colours, the others with yellow and white  flowers,  full of lush and green leaves. Kolkata's saving grace really are its trees that grow in all parts of the city, lining roads, in between buildings and popping up almost everywhere. Looking out and seeing this made my heart soar!

Beautiful, Brinda. Love that composition, too. Did you take a photo at the time for reference and paint this later, or paint it on the spot? (or do it from memory?).

Thanks Lorrie. Did a quick sketch with a pencil. Came home and painted it from memory!

I love the way it seems like the trees and bright color are overgrowing the city. Interesting to hear about your process too: combining drawing from life and memory.

Striking composition, with the building forms and the strong colors and the cool (tone)buildingsin the background.
