[Eng sub] 5min Easy Watercolor | How to paint a Rooster


Hello. I’m going to paint a rooster today. Let’s start by drawing it. The body is V-shaped. Then flesh out the V. The legs are sticking out at the bottom of the V. The head is surprisingly small. Because it’s a rooster, add a handsome crown. Now that the drawing is complete, I’ll start painting it. After lightly putting water, spread some yellow over the body. Color the shadowy section of the rooster in yellow’s complementary color bluish purple. Let’s give it a substantial three-dimensional appearance in an early stage. This is very important. The body of this rooster is basically white. Emphasize the white body by painting the background in a dark color. You may be playful with less important sections of the painting like this. Add some more details… …in lightly lit areas. A rooster has both soft feathers and relatively coarse feathers. Remember to observe details carefully. See how three-dimensional it looks now? And legs. The legs are the only spots that have no feathers. Paint the head a little more carefully. The crown is to make a rooster look dashing. Use a robust vivid tone of red sufficiently to represent it. Clearly differentiating the sun-lit spots, and shady spots to emphasize the stereoscopic effect helps the face dramatically stand out. Let’s dry it. Erase unnecessary lines and make sure that the details are present. Add some shadow at the feet of the rooster to show the physical presence. Then represent the characteristics of the claws’ shape. The face is of course important and needs to be detailed. Lastly the rectrices. Those feathers are pretty sleek. They should be painted in blue or blackish dark blue. Dry it… …and it’s done! I’ve painted a rooster today. What did you think? The distinguishing shape of the bird is a large V. That’s the first point. The second point is its plump, round body. Color wise, the striking colors of the rectrices and the crown are key. Let’s continue enjoying watercolor painting together! See you next time!

  1. Mr Shibasaki, do you make watercolor tutorial book? I find it is hard to follow your tutorial in video form because you are so pro lol. It is not you, you are great teacher, but me with zero experience lol.

  2. 鶏に無い色を入れても最後違和感が無くなるのがすごいです……。色の選び方のコツはありますか?

  5. You are such a great teacher and such a nice person!! Thank you so much for your teachings, you have to be proud for your work.

  6. it's beautiful. I 'm wondering if you draw it from a picture. It would be interesting to see the picture you use to creating your painting to see how you manage hilights, colors and shadows

  7. 陰影を強く描いてもいいんですね。
    青や緑を入れると汚くなりそうなのに最後にはすごくまとまって生き生きとしていて綺麗です😃

  8. I love how you draw and explain and paint in one video, it’s very helpful. Most people just play music over the top and ignore the fact it isn’t a very good tutorial, thanks 😁

  9. 柴崎先生!!!!
    お忙しい中、私のコメントに目を通していただき、またリクエストにお答えくださり
    ありがとうございます。感謝で胸がいっぱいです♡ 
    Big Kiss (^ε^)-☆Chu!!(^ε^)-☆Chu!!(^ε^)-☆Chu!!

  10. この度の台風被害は大丈夫でしたでしょうか? 動画配信待ってました😊 ニワトリの目が鋭く生き生きしています🐔 思いも寄らない色使いとドライブラシで立派な雄鶏の出来上がり! 早速描いてみようと思います💕🎶

  11. LOVE! ❤️ I can't wait to try this.Also, I've shared your channel with my daughter who is learning Japanese. You are a great teacher!

    先生の声は政治学者や俳優もやられてる「姜 尚中 (カン サンジュン)」に似てます🐒💦汗

  13. Shibasaki San,

    You are so skilled and make watercolor painting a breeze (so easy).

    I enjoy watching your channel. It's so relaxing, educational and inspiring.

    Stay well sir.

    😀👍

  14. どう絵に向き合ったら、柴崎先生のような大胆な色使いができますか?
    例えば今回の鶏ならば、私なら白い部分はきっとグレーっぽい色を使ってしまうと思います。そしてつまらない仕上がりになる事でしょう(-_-;)
    いつも安全な描き方をしてしまうのです。
    先生のようなリアルで大胆で迫力のある絵が描きたいです。

  15. Thank you for inspiring me to take on another medium of painting 🙂 I just wanna ask, have you made any videos about cheap supplies you'd recommend for beginners?

  16. So beautiful !
    So brilliant.. heart warming !
    On the farm , a good rooster is very very much important to a free range flock !
    Thank you Sir !

  17. I am impressed, amazed, overwhelmed and eager to paint in watercolor. Thank you dear Master! You are an inexhaustible source of talent and inspiration.

  18. 若冲もびっくりするほどの鶏の色彩、とても魅力的です。如何にかして先生の色使いをマスターしたいものですが、これは先生の持って生まれた感性と思っております。深くため息をつく・・・・

  19. 鶏は白いと言うイメージがあります。色にとらわれないで描くと立体的に表現して描けるんですね‼️とても勉強になりました。ありがとう御座います😊

  20. Even if a person is not an artist, your presentation lets him/her become an artist in the moments that he/she observes your watercolor mastery
    Thank you.

  21. Another Masterpiece Master!!! 🎨🎨🎨 Thank you. Your technique made me appreciate nature more. I have started to notice the details of my surroundings Master. The grooves, curves, lines of everything… Everything looks a bit more beautiful now. Thank you for teaching us Master. In the future I'd like to paint my dogs. 🐶🐶🐶 Teach us Master.🥺🥺🥺

  22. It's kind of funny how I always sketched rough and "sloppy" like that, but then, I was exposed to tutorials that said that you don't know how to draw properly if you need 10 lines for each feature. That totally crushed what little confidence I had.
    Well, this video proves that you can draw however you want and still get splendid results! <3 That painting is gorgeous!
