Before you learn how to draw a campfire, did you know that you should…
- Avoid building campfires under hanging branches or over steep slopes, and clear a ten-foot diameter circle around the fire of all flammable debris.
- Have lots of water nearby and a shovel to smother an out-of-control fire with dirt.
- Minimize the size of the fire to prevent problems from occurring.
- Never leave a campfire unattended.
- Use plenty of water when extinguishing a campfire and then stir the mixture and add more water. Afterward, check that there are no burning embers left whatsoever. If water is unavailable, use dirt. Take a green leaf and place it on your coals, if the leaf curls up the coals are still too hot.
- Never bury hot coals, they can continue to burn and cause root fires or wildfires. Be aware of roots if digging a hole for your fire.
- Make sure the fire pit is large enough for the campfire and there are no combustibles near the campfire. Also avoid building the campfire on a windy day. [wikipedia]

A LITTLE TIP:
You can always adjust the speed of the video tutorials by clicking on the ‘cog‘ icon (bottom right of video) and speeding it up or slowing it down. This helps making every video suit your individual pace. You can also of course use the pause/play button as required.
