Learn More About The Mushroom Drawing

Mushrooms are fascinating creatures that are neither plant nor animal. The mushroom looks like a plant, having roots, called mycelium, and growing from the ground.

It uses the mycelium to consume plant matter, yet it cannot move around freely as an animal can. Therefore, mushrooms and other fungi are classed in a group all their own.

​​Many mushrooms, such as the white button, shiitake, portobello, morel, and oyster mushrooms, are culinary delicacies used in cooking.

The truffle, for instance is difficult to find as it grows underground. Trained dogs and even pigs are used to sniff out truffles.

These mushrooms are very expensive, some selling for thousands of dollars per pound. Kits are available that allow you to safely grow your own mushrooms at home.

​​​Others, often called toadstools, are poisonous. There are about 80 types of poisonous mushrooms in the world.

Some are deadly, while others result in illness or hallucinations. You should never eat a mushroom you find in the wild.

Often, there are poisonous mushrooms that resemble the edible varieties; only an experienced mushroom hunter can tell the difference with certainty.

Why are mushrooms called toadstools? In German fairy tales, a frog or toad was often depicted as sitting on or under a mushroom.

It did this in order to catch the flies that were attracted to the mushroom's smell. In some cultures, the appearance of toadstools were superstitiously feared.

Would you like to draw your very own mushroom patch? Doing so is easy with the help of this simple, step-by-step drawing tutorial.

All you will need is a pencil, pen, or marker and a sheet of paper. You may also wish to use crayons, paints, or colored pencils to shade your finished drawing.
