[Eng sub] 5min Easy Watercolor | How to draw a sitting person
Hello. Today I’m going to paint a seated person. First draw a chair viewed from the side. It looks like this. Then draw a person who’s sitting with his body pressed tightly against the chair… …who’s also viewed from the side. See how it looks? He is pressing his body tightly against the chair. This is a very easy way to draw a seated person. Now I’m drawing an actual sketch. I’m using a slightly different perspective now. As I mentioned earlier, keep in mind that this person is sitting deeply in the chair. Because the person’s body is pressed tightly against the chair, it means his frame takes on a shape like a chair. Now that the sketch is done, let’s start painting. Because today’s theme is a seated person, I’ll keep the painting process simple. First paint the base colors, then paint the shades with the direction of the lighting in mind. Because the sun is shining from above…, …the upper faces of the person or the chair are lit. That means the top of the person’s head, shoulders, and the upper side of his thighs are lit. See? Add some wrinkles in his clothing and other details. See, what do you think? Doesn’t it look like a seated person? Now it’s coming along. Let’s say this person is sitting on a bench outdoors. First paint the backrest and then the seating face. Don’t forget to paint shades on the bench, as well. See how he’s sitting? Add the legs to the bench. And it’s done! Today I’ve painted a man sitting on the bench. If you’re practising figure painting, the seated position is one of the important poses. I’ve made a simple suggestion today for painting it. That is to first draw a chair, not the person sitting on it. Then draw a person sitting with his body pressed tightly against the chair. Then miraculously it looks like a seated person. Of course, there’s a lot to discuss about the details of the person. But I’ll take another opportunity to talk about them. Once you finish drawing a person sitting tightly in the chair, then you can draw a person from a different angle. But note that viewed diagonally from the front, his body is still shaped like a chair. That is the point. When drawing a person seated in the chair, draw it after drawing a chair. Consequently the person sitting on the chair takes the shape of a chair. That’s it. Let’s continue enjoying watercolor painting together!! See you next time!
