1. Copy what you see.
2. Put strength and feeling into your pencils or pen.
3. Nature is never exactly symmetrical on the surface, so it’s OK if your drawing doesn’t match perfectly.
4. Use dark colors for shadow and dimension (i.e., to look 3-D).
5. Have fun and “risk it,” feeling like a 3rd grader.
6. Optional: make the sky blue, sometimes even bluer than it is.:-)
