sketchcrawl


48th World Wide SketchCrawl 행사 안내 :

Date : 2015년 7월 25일 토요일, 10:30 am - 4:00 pm
Place : 서울시청사 - Seoul City Hall
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!)

After sending some dried food by parcel post to my daughter at Gwanghwamun Post Office I walked around Taepyeongro street. At Seoul Plaza there was a tent which seemed to be installed for citizens with benches, where I could sketch very comfortably. After sketching two I could see a big smoke behind the city hall buildings. Because I didn't have seen such a big smoke, at first I thought it was a kind of dark cloud expecting a shower soon. But it looked too dark, nearly black. So I asked two policemen who stood near me, "Hello, is it a kind of cloud or a fire smoke?" The were surprised at the scene and went forward to the direction of smoke and came back saying "There was a fire!". I started to draw the scene already. The fire seemed to cease within 10 to 20 minutes and the sky looked clear again. On the way coming home I heard that there was a big fire at the construction field and four laborers died unfortunately. Very sad to hear that.
