I'm Risa Tanigawa.
A textbook course with recipes on how to draw.
The "Petit Lesson" will start in June.
The first one is "Haruiro Letter".
The English version
will be accepted starting tomorrow,
Friday, June 25, at 10 AM (Japan time).
『Aqua Pastel Petit Lesson』
The concept of "Aqua Pastel Petit Lesson" is to "enjoy pastel art easily and firmly" with a textbook and a recipe video of how to draw.
This is a one-time lesson that can be enjoyed by both beginners and experienced artists.
"It's only for a short time.
I want to enjoy drawing pastel art!"
I'm sure there are people who have such a desire.
I myself am one of those people.
Recently, with the Corona disaster,
online art lesson has become more and more popular.
There are more and more opportunities to take lessons on computers, smartphones, tablets, and other devices.
If you try to take lessons in real time...
most of the lessons are
2 to 3 hours long, during the daytime on weekdays.
For some people,
it's really hard to get a good amount of time...!
I myself have been
working, raising children, and fighting illness, and difficulty of taking time for myself.
I want to make it possible for people to enjoy the program at their own pace, even if it is only for a short time.
I've made a recipe video of how to draw that summarizes the key points so that you can easily watch it in your free time.
You can watch the recipe videos in less than 5 minutes, so you can use them for preparation.
There is no audio explanation for the recipe videos, but subtitles are provided for each point.
Click on the subtitle button to view the English subtitles.
The e-text will be 16 pages in length with detailed photos and descriptions.
For the English version, I have left the electronic textbook printable because there are some countries where international mail cannot reach.
I believe that you have your own preferences in terms of the atmosphere of the course and the way of taking it.
Please try a "petit lesson" to see for yourself.
“Haruiro Letter" is based on the theme of "hope”.
By the way, "haruiro" is a word coined from the Japanese readings of "haru" = spring and "iro" = color.
You'll get through this depressing time and you'll receive a good luck letter too!
This is a work that I drew with the hope of cheering up everyone who is working hard right now in the Corona disaster.
This is the first time. I've included a little something extra.
"Haruiro Letter" was born during the cherry blossom season.
I drew many pictures and changed the shape little by little until I came up with the current shape.
The stencil design is a clover.
I added a motif of cherry blossoms at the time of birth.
I will give you the PDF file.
You can print out any page you like.
I hope you enjoy it again during the flower season.
I hope a lot of people will enjoy it♡
