I used the side of a 2B wood pencil lead to create the foliage in the background because I think that gives the illusion of depth with the blurriness of trees so far away.

The texture of my sketchpad also adds to the effect.

Just like learning to draw, there a few things that you need to keep in mind...

  • make a mental note to scribble quickly,
  • remind yourself that there is no erasing,
  • keep drawing in lines until a shape looks right,
  • if you're right-handed, go from left to right.

Focus on the simple task of seeing, forget about technique, you just want a true representation.
