[Eng sub] Watercolor sketch at Hiroshima Castle | Shibasaki

“Hiroshima” Hi. I’ve just arrived in Hiroshima. Now I’m going into town for painting. I’m using a taxi because it’s unexpectedly hot today. Where should I go? Now I’m at Hiroshima Castle. It’s very busy with lots of foreign visitors. This is Hiroshima Castle. After being destroyed by the effects of the atomic bomb, the castle was reconstructed in 1958. See how crowded it is with tourists? Let’s get started. I’ll start with a rough sketch. This building is the tower of the castle. It’s symmetrical. I’m adding some visitors climbing up the stone stairs to the tower. Now I’m starting to paint. As usual, prepare lots of color to first paint the silhouette of the building. You may leave the sunny areas on the roof unpainted. The lower half of the castle’s white walls are covered with wooden panels, which decorate the castle beautifully. That’s a unique characteristic of Hiroshima Castle and should be depicted in the painting. The front stone walls are painted with the dry-brush method in this way. Now that the silhouette is complete, I’ll start painting with the roof tiles. These reddish-brown areas are the wooden panels. The tower is a very tall building that I need to look up at from where I’m standing. To represent the height, you need to firmly paint the back of the roof… …and to paint the higher floors in a light and dim manner. …And see how the wood patterns and other details are added for the lower floors? The upper area of the building and the lower area that’s closer to you should be drastically contrasted… …to represent the height of the tower of the castle that climbs into the air. Isn’t this method interesting? See how the tower is coming along? The green trees were astonishingly lush here. This is a pretty big park. It’s quite a hike to get to this tower… …on the large premises. There aren’t many remaining buildings but lots of trees are growing instead. Produce some changes to the trees as usual by adding dark tones of color and splashing paint. These stone walls are situated foremost closest to me and more details need to be added. This is where I painted. I don’t always paint in the best locations. I often have to forcibly make room for myself in a very tiny spot. Lots of visitors come to talk to me when I’m painting. It’s part of fun 😀 If you add lots more detail to the stone walls, it reinforces the stereoscopic effect. “It looks great.” Some visitors praise my painting. That makes me happy! “Only 30 minutes?” “Seriously?” “It’s amazing!” A visitor was surprised when I told him it took me 30 minutes to complete this painting. But this is a great thing about watercolor painting. I have just completed a painting at Hiroshima Castle. It was warm today and perfect for painting outside. I hope you enjoyed it. See you next time!

  5. 私には大雑把に描いているように見えるのに、簡単なスケッチにもかかわらず、筆で色の交わりや光のコントラストなどの細かいところを気遣って描きながら遠近感をだし存在感をだしていらっしゃるので、本当に30分とは驚きです。そういうところが自然にできるのが素人の自分と違うところですね。また、大きな建物で迫力を感じるのですが、同時に安らぎもあり、今回もとても素敵な絵ですね。ありがとうございます。

  36. No se si me entenderás,,he visto tú Instagram y madre mía 🤦🏽‍♀️ las pinturas que tienes,,eres un genio!! Me ha gustado mucho mucho mucho 🤗 enhorabuena!!!!!!

  37. I wish I took the time to visit the castle when I went to Hiroshima last year. I only saw it from the road. I guess I got so immersed in the experience of walking around the Peace Park, almost missed the boat to Miyajima.

    Shibasaki-san, I’m glad you are feeling well enough to travel and paint. You are really amazing to be able to paint with that much detail in 30min. I love seeing people paint and tried my best to tell them they did well. Sometimes, I ask permission if I could take a pic of their paintings too. Hopefully when I visit in a couple of weeks, I get to see a different view of Japan.

  38. to me it's often seemed like artists who paint with watercolor are trying to work against its natural tendencies as a medium… a lot of people paint only with very fine brushes and try really hard to stop the watercolor from bleeding around as if they're trying to trap it. Their work is still beautiful, but i really appreciate that your paintings don't have that feeling. You still do the same level of fine detail and you work with small brushes too, but the whole process feels much freer and the end result much more lively to me. Thank you sensei

  39. I loved seeing your journey to Hiroshima! As someone who lives in a different country, it is wonderful to see small pieces of life in Japan. Thank you for sharing a bit about your day and for guiding us through this beautiful painting!

  40. I used to paint by my daughters' school and would get tons of questions from the young kids about the paintings. That was always the most fun part of the experience for me. Getting to teach them some things while I painted. Loved this one as well. Thank you for taking us along. 😀

  41. 短時間で複雑な建築物から必要な情報をぬきとって描けるのは、すごいです。


  42. ワォ!広島まで来られたんですね。広島市内の学童は大概授業でこの天守閣を写生します。そんな子供たちがこの動画をタイミングよく観たら喜ぶだろうなぁ。

  43. Thank you for bringing us with you to Hiroshima castle! I'm sure I'm not the only one who had fun on this group trip 🙂 your paintings are so masterful, beautiful, and relaxing 🙇‍♀️

  44. 最近、先生の描く過程がたくさん見れてとても嬉しく拝見しています。どうしてそうなるの!?と毎回飽きることなく驚いてしまいます。先生の旅の様子なども楽しい。こうのような動画、とっても好きです!

  45. I started crying over how much this all made me miss Japan. The painting is beautiful and you captured the beauty of the castle so well. Wow <3

  46. Glad to see Grandpa Shibasaki out and having fun! Japanese castles are beautiful and I really enjoyed Osaka castle while I was there. Too bad we were on a hectic sightseeing run and didn't have the time to do outdoor artwork 🙁

  47. 待ってました!!先生が外に出かけての解説付きスケッチ動画。懐かしいテーマ曲?とともにとても嬉しいです。
