Hey folks I thought it would be fun to make another odd lesson that has something to do with oil once again. Here is "how to draw an oilfield", step by step. Oilfields are where big machines called 'oilfield pumping units'. These machines dig deep into the earth to form a hole which is then used to pump out oil from the ground. Oil is one of Americas leading fueling agent as well as a main ingredient to make all kinds of stuff like tires, asphalt, plastic bottles and bins, so on and so forth. The pumping unit that you will be drawing is set in a setting where the sun is going down. It's a really nice landscape lesson that will definitely come in handy to create an art project for school, or a nice cover hand drawn photo for an economics class report. Even though this was definitely an odd lesson to create, I still had fun drawing an oilfield scenery. Well I guess I better let you guys get busy. I still have more drawing fun coming your way. Peace out and enjoy!
