Wolfshagen, Germany

Quick sketch; view from my hotelroom in the Berghotel in Wolfshagen (Germany, the Harz).
I was there on business (again). I made this drawing in the early morning, just before breakfast. It was a few days before our present horrible autumn weather started, filled with storms and rain. Back then the air was bright and fresh, but windstill; the coloured leaves were still on the trees.
How quickly that all changed.

'Catching the moment' is part of the enchantment of sketching. You've done well with this composition.
The leaves have all departed from the trees a few weeks ago here, although the temperature is still welcoming. I think November is the worst month - its very dark, the landscape is stark, and normally cold. With December comes a blanket of snow which makes everything look cleaner and brighter. But I ramble on too much!

In my opinion November is still okay, nature is not too cold, and the streets are filled with colourful lights and full of expectation to "sinterklaas" (st nicholas 5 december) and christmas.
Then January, February and March, they take veeeery long. Most years we have no snow in these parts. We only have Carnaval to cheer up the drab weather.
