For nature images I like working from a photo reference. Morguefile.com free stock photos is a great free resource for all kinds of photos. Pull the photo into your photo editing program and use the eyedropper or color picker tool to determine the RGB (red-green-blue) code for the lightest area, mid range, and dark areas.

Prismacolor has a cool tool on their site where you can plug those codes in and get a close match to products in their lines. That's here:
