Learning how to draw is a gradual process of learning to notice details. Two of these mushrooms offer a simple profile, but the middle one shows students how easy it is to make something look a bit more round, as mushrooms really are. All it takes is tilting the cap up a bit so you can see how the stem attaches in the center, and the edges spiral out from it.
