Plein air painting at lalbagh

Lalbagh botanical garden in Bengaluru is my most preferred spot for plein air painting, mainly because its full of trees and foliage and that is one area which I need to learn to simplify in my plein air paintings and not get bogged down by trying to paint the details. So when I saw this huge tree, my main focus was the lovely light on it and its shadows on the ground. The leaves and foliage on the tree and the background were painted minimally so as to avoid unwanted distractions. What's more, while I was painting this, 3 girls just came and sat under its shade for a chit chat, which made the subject more interesting. So rather naming this painting as 'the big tree at lalbagh', I titled it as '3 friends'.
After completing the painting, I decided to do one more before heading back home. Wanted to do a different subject from the first one, so selected this red building at the garden. This was not as interesting as the first one, yet I carried on. It could have been better though!
Hope you enjoy them.
