    Well if you're writing descriptively then just use your imagination and describe what you could imagine seeing in that situation!

    Remember all the senses.

    Elaborate on each description.

    Vary syntax length.

    Include some techniques just because you have to but don't go overboard.

    Five senses! Describe everything you smell, hear, taste, touch and smell in vivid detail. Make it something you would want to read.

    Be original. Don't use cliches. Remember the figurative techniques available to you (similes, metaphors, personification...), but don't overuse these. Try to use interesting verbs rather than piling up the adjectives. Focus on small, unexpected things rather than the scene as a big picture - it's much more interesting.

    Yeah I agree with this, the more original you are the more standout it'll be and you'll secure marks.

    You've done this in a way by using an old drunk man as opposed to a park full of happy young children and parents!
