They’re light green, and layered like tiny leaves or scales. I’m not sure but I think this is a live oak. I’ll ask later at the visitor’s center to be sure. The trees are sprawling with limbs going back down to the sand and all covered with lichens.
I was glad to get over there today after staying home for a couple days because of windy and rainy weather. Today it’s still a little cold and cloudy but not much wind. Tomorrow, winter weather is coming in.
I’d like to paint the whole tree. There’s a lot of them around the empty campsites, so, good time of year for that project.
It would be fun to paint lichens super close up too. I might be able to wing it at home since I have this sketch.
