'Three Pines' depicts several evergreen trees with slender trunks and gracile branches standing on a rocky outcrop. The trees have a lively green coloring with some areas highlighted by lighter shades, suggesting sunlight filtering through the needles.

Behind the trees, the sweeping brushstrokes create a dynamic sky. The sky features a mixture of blue, white, and pink hues, which could indicate a time of day when the sun is at a low angle, like early morning or late afternoon. The brushwork in the sky is particularly expressive, with the colors blending into each other and giving the impression of movement, possibly depicting fast-moving clouds or wind.

Beneath the sky, a shoreline is painted using shades of blue that suggest depth and distance. The rock formation on which the trees are perched is rendered with dark, earthy tones and sharp, angular lines that contrast with the more fluid lines of the shoreline and sky.

Overall, the painting has a combination of peacefulness and energy, with the solidity of the rocks and the stillness of the water juxtaposing the dynamic sky and the wind-swept trees. Peter uses bold, confident brushstrokes to convey the natural beauty and drama of a shoreline.
