Amazonian sketching: Sacha Inchi

Amazonian sketching: Sacha Inchi - student project

Hi Julia! I've been living in the Amazon rainforest and Nature here is amazing. It's the main inspiration to create my artworks. I'm a researcher in a public Amazonian university and your classes really give me what I was looking for for a long time: the way to put together my love for plant, science and art!! So here you have my first sketch about Sacha Inchi (scientific name: Plukenetia volubilis), a plant that produce seeds with a high content of omega 3 fatty acids, very good fat!! Thanks to your classes, I'm very inspired right now....more Amazonian plant sketches are coming!!!!
