Meeting spot : 지하철 1호선 4번 출구에서 나와 청사 입구 옆에 있는 쉼터 (small resting place out of exit 4 in Seoul city hall station, subway no. 1, near the entrance to city hall)
서울 시청사 건물이 새로 지어진지도(2012년) 여러해가 되는데 청사 건물 안팍을 함께 스케치하지 못하여 이번 여름 스케치크롤 장소로 택해보았습니다. 한국의 중심을 본격적으로 그려서 소개했으면 합니다. 관심있는 분들의 참석 바랍니다.
(Since new city hall had been built on 2012 it's first time for us to sketch together. Inside the hall there are lots of interesting spaces for concerts, cafe, exhibition including observatory hall on 8th. As a capital city building surrounded with historical palace, churches, and business buildings we may find nice subjects in and out of city hall with citizens. Hope you to join us and enjoy the sketching together!)
A female staff from milk producer was offering small cups of milk to customers in mart.
A male staff was explaining how to use cutting utensil to customers to sell it.
I went to a big mart near my village by walk over one and a half hour. There I washed these ones seated on chairs in different floors more comfortably than in streets. I bought a blue jacket for coming spring.
This is a very long pedestrian bridge over Sinyeong three-way intersection in front of Segumjung Elementary school(right side of this paper), Seoul. For the kids the bridge has many downsteps, I think. In real the road was broader than this. Next time I'll draw better than now.
I hung my watercolor kit on the tree after sketching for washing.
I could finish barely without turning the painting gear over to the street. I walked again today but came back in the middle due to the raindrops. I did't keep an umbrella. (27.5 x 17 cm, pen and watercolor)
in front of cute coffee shop "Gumeong Gage(small shop)' located at Sinyeong-dong, Seoul
in front of Shilla Myungua located at Buam-dong, Seoul
at Zzangmyun(chinese noodle) restaurant located at Hyoja-dong, Seoul where I had Zazangmyun
in front of coffee shop 'Bonsol Coffee' located near Naeja Crossroad, Seoul
I walked from my house to Gwanghwamun Square. It took over three hours walking and sketching. While walking I had good time sketching these shops. Some owners asked me to come in and to have coffee being pleased with the drawings. I let them know the websites on which their shop drawings would be posted. Just walking gave the chances to meet nice people while sketching! Thank you for the kindness you've shown on the strange sketcher! (27.5 x 17 cm, pen and watercolor)
I went to A/S center of Philips located near Gunja station for repairing hair trimmer which I had bought on 1998. While waiting for it to be mended I sketched the goods on shelves such as irons, hair drier, hair curling iron... I could watch some drama on TV set. I felt happy to be able to use it again. The engineer said that I could use it for 4-5 years more by changing the batteries this time. (12.5 x 19.5 cm, pen, pencil, felt tip pen)
The Seoul Children's Grand Park is most suitable place to sketch various subjects, such as animals and people or diverse buildings surrounded by greens. Last Saturday was comparatively clear weather, so we had a pleasant sketch time with enthusiastic work all day long. We are looking forward to join with new comers. Glad to see you!
I had to go to the Samyook Hospital located at Chungryang-ri due to the stomachache of my son. The hospital offers medical services on sunday by the principle of their religion 'The Seventh Day Adventist church'. Even though it's sunday the traffic was terrible. The roads were restricted for the marathon runners. We're caught in car over 20 minutes. I had to sketch the scenery. Luckily I could draw the East Grand Gate on the road.
