View from the room

During one of the brief moments I was in my room yesterday afternoon, I was struck by the view out my window.

A bare-limbed tree, autumn decor already a crunching carpet on the lawn, stood silhouetted before its bright red-orange neighbor. I've been watching these trees change all semester. Add in a backdrop of dramatic slate storm clouds, and how could I resist?

Here's the relatively quick sketch I did to capture the scene (black pen, colored pencil- click for larger version):
