The Seasonals

It's November now, which means the sun sets at 4:30 or earlier, and it's starting to get bitterly cold. I usually have a tough time with seasonal depression, or "the seasonals," so this year, since I know it's coming, I'm going to try and manage it by doing a lot of fitness and a lot of drawing practice. Today I went outside during midday and sat myself down at a coffee shop to draw. I find that since I take a long time to draw things, the shadows move on me and sometimes it gets too dark for me to finish. This time it was the opposite. I didn't finish the left side because the sun had set to just above the building, so I couldn't make it out from the glare in the window where I was sitting. Something to keep in mind for next time, I guess!
