Painting landscapes in a wetlands setting may not be easy for people whose experience and knowledge are considerably  less than us. However, an  easy start could be made by taking the  time to make observation of some chosen spots  in the reserve. Knowledge of the flora (mangrove trees) would help; the common types, their  shapes, branching, growth  patterns and locality  in  the reserve. Combining the basic elements of land, sky and weather, flora and if needed the presence of humans, an interesting composition is possible, without being too technical. At the next level, one should learn to incorporate the effect of light and tonal nuances.
