An international group of artists have just 10 days to paint the Dry Forest of Peru and Ecuador and put the place on the map. See how they do it: from the moment they spot a bird to the last stroke of the brush. Watch them draw and paint, and listen as they explain what motivates them and what their feelings are for the forest and its creatures.
Lars Jonsson paints the breath-taking action of the little Amazilia Hummingbird mobbing a vine snake; Vadim Gorbatov wrestles with his Spectacled bear painting; and Kim Atkinson on her visit to a local homestead finds a great subject for her charcoal sketch in the figure of a woman weaving. The video also features extraordinary film of Spectacled Bear, and White-winged Guan during their breeding seasons; endemic hummingbirds dance above a waterfall as they bathe; the rare Marvellous Spatuletails fight over their mupa mupa trees; traditional fishermen surf the waves in their flimsy reed canoes and the Andean Condor soars over the dry forest symbolized in rock art of great antiquity. Travel with them and experience this fascinating but little known Tumbesian region of South America from the Pacific surf through the Sechuran desert to the cactus dry forest and the cloud forest of the Andes. With expert narration from Bruce Pearson.
