Description: Plants are awesome because they provide a form of oxygen while they reside in your house. One person that I know of that has a bunch of house plants is my grandmother. She is the only one person that I know that has a genuine green thumb. I say this because all her plants as so alive, vibrant, and well, healthy. The tutorial that I am putting up now will show you "how to draw a plant step by step". I sketched out a scenery that looks very much like my grandmothers parlor. She has this particular plant that you will be drawing, which is a "sansevieria" or snake plant. The sansevieria, is a plant that is almost hard to kill, but beautiful to look at. It almost looks like a fake plant which is mainly because it is so sturdy looking. I love the way that this plant came out because it is exactly what my grannies sansevieria looks like. All in all, this is an easy tutorial that almost all of you will be able to tackle. Learning "how to draw a plant", almost gives you the same effects as owning a plant gives; peace, relaxation, and joy. There is so many beautiful plants in existence, and if you want to, you can even sketch out one of those small cactus plants that thrive in a small ceramic bowl.
