It's time for another landscape drawing and this time it is going to take place in the Amazon. The rainforest is a place that holds the largest collection of plant and animal life. Did you know that if the Amazon was a country it would be the ninth largest place in the world? I have read about the rainforest and how it is being destroyed with each passing day. It's sad to see that such a beautiful and important place is loosing ground in our world. The sad part is that, if the rainforest where to be completely destroyed, then we as humans would loose a whopping twenty percent of our oxygen. I know it sounds a bit crazy but it's true. I mean how can it not, it's made up of 1.2 billion acres which is basically two fifths of the South American continent. Now the Amazon rainforest is part of Brazil right? Just think, one pond in Brazil can house a greater number of fish and aquatic life then that of all the rivers in Europe. Or how about this food for thought, the amount of different types of fish species found in the amazon, is greater then all the fish that live in all of the Atlantic Ocean. The sketch I drew out is very simple, and learning "how to draw a rainforest, step by step” is going to be a lot easier then you think. The amazon consists of thick dense amounts of trees, foliage, vines, water, humidity, and most of all animals and insects. Just reading the facts about this wondrous place gives me the chills because it is so close to being on the verge of destruction. Have fun with this tutorial, and be creative by adding some tropical animals, plants, and or insects. I will be back momentarily so be sure to stay tuned in to the best drawing site in the world, Dragoart.com.
