This is another episode ofLet’s Draw at Home Together.
It’s beginning! Are you staying home? I’m staying home every day.
Let us all help each other untilthis disease is soon gone.
Today we’re going to draw with a pencil again.
🙂 You already know it.
Get your pencil ready always.
You also need an eraser.
And some soft paper as well.
You don’t need this much though.
Then let’s draw together! It’s beginning! Let’s get started then.
With a pencil.
First hold the pencil lightly and casually shade the entire area.
We’re going to draw white flowers in a white vase.
So this is to prepare the background for them.
Now horizontal lines.
This is excellent practice for people who want to improving their drawing skills.
Drawing lines continuously with the same strength.
Drawing vertical lines is more difficult.
Just try! Everyone from little children to all the other family members, as well.
Drawing those lines from left to rightis even harder.
You should try this too.
Practicing drawing lines is essential training for better drawing.
I often use the expression “lubricate the arm” so that the arm moves smoothlywhen drawing pictures.
Keep shading like this.
If you noticed, I am making an even darker area.
In order to represent the air in the background… …I am intentionally making changes for darker and lighter areas.
Try this method if you are a middle or high school student.
Now that it’s done, I’ll soften the shade with paper.
This is our usual technique.
Here it is.
You don’t need a lot.
Roll it lightly in your hand… …and rub the surface.
You can do it with your finger.
But if you do so, then the oil on your finger will stick to the paper.
I would recommend using soft paper if possible.
You don’t need to rub it hard.
I’m actually doing this gently.
It’s important to maintain the advantage of using a pencil and to let viewers admire it.
See how the pencil lines are still visible? Now we’re drawing the vase.
Is this a good place for it? First draw horizontal and vertical lines.
Are you done? Place a circle here.
Now extend lines from the horizontal line.
This is the vase or a vessel we are using for the flowers today.
So that’s it.
Let’s say the light is coming from the top right today… …and the left side of the vessel is a little darker than the other side.
But remember today’s vase is white.
So the dark side doesn’t have to be very dark.
Now let’s draw the flowers.
The flowers are white as well.
When a shape is drawn, lightly shade it.
In the same way as the vase was done.
The flower’s shaded at some spots.
Where will you place your white flowers? I’m drawing these flowers…, …but you can draw bigger flowers.
The types of flowers and where theyshould be are is up to you.
Just keep it in mind that they arewhite flowers.
I’m just drawing the flowers inthe same size and shape… …in the way I like.
Not all drawings have good planningin advance.
A drawing can be made by inspirationas you are drawing it.
That’s the freedom of creationthat you can enjoy.
An idea, such an addition of an object, could occur in the moment.
It won’t be fun if you have too muchprior planning.
I’m adding some darker colored flowers because white flowers alone will look boring.
Let’s come up with a color aswe won’t be able to see a darker “color”.
Let’s say they are red flowers.
So they are darker in tone thanwhite flowers.
You can decide onwhere your red flowers will be.
If possible though… …the red flowers should be placedbeside the white flowers.
The stronger contrast it creates will make the flower shapes clear.
And the drawing will vary widely.
You need to assume these arered flowers.
Now I’m drawing leaves.
Naturally they are green.
We are only using white, black and gray… …but imagining colorswhile drawing greatly helps.
I’m drawing these leaves, but how will you do yours? Any leaf will do.
It’s your decision.
Should I draw another one here? A flower? I mean a leaf.
Place flowers and leaves so that they’ll produce depth.
And here… I’ll draw the handle… …of the pot.
…or the cup… …like this? Well? How’s yours going? You can decide on the flower shape and the location of the white flowers.
We have a lot of freedom today.
Just rely on your ideas.
Freedom often requires consideration.
But that’s part of fun.
Now I’ve brought an eraser.
Remember that the light comes from here.
From the top right.
With that light direction in mind… …imagine where on the white floweris lit in the light.
Erase the gray shade in these spots… …in a way that the white flower petalswill take shape.
See how it works? Are you trying it? How about you, little ones? Where would you put your white flowers? It’s also interesting if you draw petals by erasing the shade.
Well? Aren’t they beginning to look likewhite flowers? It’s fun! It’s like using white paint over top.
This is another way to createa pencil drawing.
The white flowers are starting to shinein the bright light.
See? Can you see it? How’s your drawing coming along? Now… I’ll work on this area as well… Today’s drawing has white flowers, red flowers, and green leaves.
I’m currently creating light spots on the white flowers in particular with an eraser.
Are you working on yours? Make your own image as to where on the flowers is particularly lit.
Let’s light the vase.
What about this spot first? Then here.
Let’s make today’s vase a little fancy.
Specifically… …this way.
Then this way.
And then this way.
Isn’t it nice? Doesn’t it look fancy? Look.
That’s the vase.
Notice the length of each white lineis different.
Try that idea if you want.
What do you think of this addition? Now take the pencil… …and lightly reshape the white flowers… …like this.
And then like this.
This is another choice you can make.
Use the pencil in the way you like.
Hold the pencil a little straight up… …as long as the petals look sort oflike petals.
Here are red flowers.
And green leaves.
Make dark spots really dark.
Make sure light spots and dark spots are placed next to each other like a sandwich.
Then you can highlight the shapesof the white flowers.
Adding some details here… Well? Is this good? 🙂 Keep on working freely.
Just try what you prefer.
What about this? Because the vase is round, add more shade around the bottom… …and recondition the shaded area… …for a better three-dimensional effect.
Now we’re adding some more detailsto the surroundings.
I’m imagining some white petals scatteredaround the vase.
Erase the spots with the eraser to shape them.
See the white petals on the floor? Make sure that the sides don’t look the same.
They shouldn’t look symmetrical.
There are more petals on the right side, for example.
It should be changeful.
You can also draw a line for the edge of the table.
Let’s add a few more details to the vase.
…and make the background darker.
It’ll show the shape of the vase more clearly.
Well? Is yours coming along? You can make a decision here too.
You can add more leaves… …or another red flower.
Add details to the petals on the table too.
Not too much.
Add some shade.
Work on this petal as well.
Now make sure that the vasehas a good shadow.
A good shadow emphasizes the presence of the object.
Well, is yours done? How does it look? Look at the entire picture… …and make the objects in the front a little clearer than the rest of the drawing.
Distinguish dark spots and light spotswith strong lines.
Then the flowers and the entire picturewill look more three-dimensional.
It may be difficult for young children.
Ask your parents, or older siblingsif you have any.
Well? Isn’t it interesting? With white, black and gray, this is what you can draw.
So this is it! How did it go? Did you draw white flowers? With a pencil… …you can not only shade objects dark but also shape objects in white.
If little kids and older kids…, …fathers and mothers…, …and also grandparents try drawing this…, …that’ll make me happy.
Let’s stay calm and peacefullike these flowers and keep on working.
Wait for my next video that’ll be posted soon! Stay home!.
