Had good afternoon sun for most of this one before cloud layer rolled back in. Had to wing it just a bit at the end there. But I learned something neat: torrey pine trees are the chameleons of trees. They change colors drastically at every subtle shift of light. I think it has to do with their needles being fairly open, allowing light to filter and refract through between them. Very beautiful, but challenging to convey. They may have won this round, but I’ll be back for a rematch one of these days. Title has nothing to do with any of this, I was just listening to that album from Beck while painting today.
