The Flooded Rainforest
The painstaking process of watercolor continues its course. I have been working on the left side of the work, so detailed that time has stopped. The skin of the small alligator took me several days of work since each one of its scales changes its tone depending on the direction of the light.
In the background, there is a palm tree. This was one of the first elements I chose when I made the sketch. The rainforest of the Amazon gets flooded every rainy season, and when the water level rises, the vegetation is submerged, leaving different color stripes on the bark of the trunks. These stripes are colonized by lichens, fungi, and moss, which give them an impressive appearance. It is an entire ecosystem on the bark’s surface that contrasts with the tones of the dry leaves on the ground.
