The weather was very clear last Saturday, especially it was the first sketch meeting in four months after Corona19, so the atmosphere of the meeting place was full of vitality. Buam-dong, a beautiful village, is a small tourist attraction that I often visit and sketch because it is close to my home and has various painting elements. The village, which has the rural atmosphere of Bukaksan Mountain and Inwangsan Mountain hills, is filled with many sketching elements, including famous food restaurants, cafes, modern galleries, and registered cultural assets.
In the morning, I sat on the stone steps looking at Bukhansan Mountain in the distance, and began to paint a panoramic view of the village where high and low houses were harmonized. I drew a watercolor on a large piece of paper. When drawing on a larger piece of paper than on a small piece of paper previously drawn, it was certainly beneficial in many ways because it allowed more observation and concentration on the subject.
After lunch, I leaned over the table on the second floor of the cafe(Club Espresso) and sketched the various street views over the window in a comfortable atmosphere. I usually use pens and watercolors, but I think it's good to enjoy different flavors of atmosphere, sometimes using a variety of colored pencils, pastels, and markers, and so forth. Buam-dong is a small and cute village, but it is also a good place to sketch for new challenges to various objects and materials.
코로나19로 인해 어반스케치의 제약을 받아 온 날들은
더더욱 현장그림의 소중함을 크게 깨닫게 해주는 계기 같습니다.
부암동은 명산과 둘레길, 볼거리와 먹거리 카페의 핫 플레이스~
빈티지와 현대미, 예술과 전통 문화가 자연스레 어우러지고
명징한 하늘아래 구비구비 골목길.. 다양한 색들의 변주곡을 들으면서
북악의 호연지기를 마시며 5월의 부암동 스케치에 취해봅니다.
