Mt. Norwottuck mountain of the Holyoke Range mountains

It is easier for me to draw ocean waves than to get the shape of Mt. Norwottuck, which I have drawn so many hundreds of times that you’d think it would get easier. The mountain sits right up against the stark white cloudless sky, reading chiaroscuro from the sharp angle of November sun. The mountain, (which probably now belongs to me), is finished with me for the season; it is too cold to hold the crayons. Mt. Norwottuck never even turned ruby red this year as it does each year. It went from orange-rust yesterday to grey today. (Overnight rain pulled the leaves down).
