Careful study of individual landscape elements will make it easier and easier to draw them into the view you have selected. The more you draw trees, the better your trees will look, and so it goes.
Try drawings that are about big land shapes, and try drawings that are about intersecting wedges of land or belts of trees or bands of rocks in interesting patterns.
Try drawings of small corners of your world—a favorite place or a hidden refuge, for example.
Try to see trees as individuals. Think of them as wood spirits having their portrait drawn.
Most of all, find the little things in the woods, in the mountains, in the fields, or at the beach that are the tokens or talismans of the place. Bring them home and draw them. That way, you can treasure them always.
