Swamp Step-by-Step Drawing Tutorial

A swamp is a wetland that is forested. Swamps are considered to be transition zones because both land and water play a role in creating this environment. Swamps vary in size and are located all around the world. The water of a swamp may be fresh water, brackish water or seawater. Freshwater swamps form along large rivers or lakes where they are critically dependent upon rainwater and seasonal flooding to maintain natural water level fluctuations. Saltwater swamps are found along tropical and subtropical coastlines. Some swamps have hammocks, or dry-land protrusions, covered by aquatic vegetation, or vegetation that tolerates periodic inundation[5] or soil saturation. The two main types of swamp are “true” or swamp forests and “transitional” or shrub swamps. In the boreal regions of Canada, the word swamp is colloquially used for what is more correctly termed a bog, fen, or muskeg. Some of the world’s largest swamps are found along major rivers such as the Amazon, the Mississippi, and the Congo.

Swamp” Song lyrics

My warning meant nothing
You’re dancing in quicksand
Why don’t you watch where you’re wandering?
Why don’t you watch where you’re stumbling?
You’re wading knee deep and going in
You’re wading knee deep and going in
This bog is thick and easy to get lost in
When you’re a stupid, dumb ass, belligerent fucker
This bog is thick and easy to get lost in
When you’re a stupid, dumb ass, belligerent fucker
I hope it sucks you down
Down, down, down, down
