­Add a dot for the duck's eye, a tiny V-shaped figure for a beak, and a fluffy tail to make the duck look more real. Form a thin oval around it for a circular wave. Attach the rails between the posts by drawing horizontal and diagonal lines with the help of a ruler. Use a combination of V-shaped and horizontal and vertical lines for boards on the barn door.­

Show sections in the silo with curved lines. Sketch the tree trunk using wavy lines. Use a squiggly line to form the top of the tree line in the background. Add tufts of grass along the edge of the pond with a series of jagged lines.­
