"Find a plant you are curious about. Look at it carefully. Now draw the plant. Don't think about your third-grade art teacher; you're not being graded. But notice how the way that you look at the plant changes when you draw it. You examine it more closely, you notice spatial relationships...." — Joyce A. Wardwell, The Herbal Home Remedy Book
