               The day before yesterday,  I went to the Sejong culture center for sketching
               with my friend.   The weather was so clear and not cloud in the sky
                Flowers are fully blooming and trees boast their green leaves.
                As usual Gwang hwamum was crowded with people,protesters, workers,
                and people who involved in the election.
                I sketched buildings sit down on the stairs of the Sejong center, and
                after lunch, it was a little hot, I entered Samsung service plaza and drew
               the scenery out of the window.
                It was interesting and meaning day~~

Take me to Gwanghwamun, go out for the sketches., protesting, tourists and passers-by crowded Friday with travelers leaving.This is think that as a symbolic place in Korea life was spared....
I went to the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts.
I drew  a lot of people more  than many buildings.
This is a short break from the cleaners.
One spring day, I'd like to remember  a moment 's worth of time.

More sketches at Buam-dong

pencil, watercolor, 30.5 x 40.5 cm

conte, pastels, 30.5 x 40.5 cm

pen, watercolor, 39 x 27 cm




These are the drawings I'd done days before the sketchcrawl day, April 22nd. I surveyed there several times for the meetup. And I drew some every time. There were so many places which caught my eyes. Most of the sketchers who visited there agreed and wanted to sketch them again. I felt sorry that we couldn't visit the Baeksasil village which keeps the original scenery of countryside. We may have chance to capture all those beautiful scenes next time. 

부암동은 가까이 살면서도 늘 스쳐지나갔던 아름다운 마을입니다. 이번 기회에 스케치를 할 수 있어 숙제를 한듯한 느낌입니다. 아직 해야할 숙제가 많기는 하지만요. 욕심내지 말고 천천히 한장씩 그려보려고 합니다. 늘 함께 해주시는 스케쳐 여러분들께 감사드립니다.

Last Saturday, it was fine to sketch outdoors. For the 55th World Wide SketchCrawl, we Seoul urban sketchers met at Buam-dong, Jongno-gu in Seoul. Buam-dong is a charming village in central Seoul that was once occupied mostly by artists and writers. 
Today, modern galleries, coffee shops, and restaurants stand side by side with old mills and barber shops on the narrow alleyways. The historic village harmonizes with Bugaksan Mountain and Inwangsan Mountain, and is famous for various tourist attractions.
On the morning of SketchCrawl day, for some unavoidable reasons, I couldn't help joining with sketchers in the afternoon. The day before, I visited for preliminary survey and drew some sketches in advance. I was absorbed in sketching colorful sceneries of important places here and there around Buam-dong village till late in the afternoon. It was very pleasant sketch time in the beautiful village with Seoul usk members.

인왕산 기슭의 아름다운 동네~~
서울 한복판의 전원마을엔 역사의 향기가 감돌고...
예술과 멋과 맛의 흥취를 담고 자연속에 건강함을 선사하는
부암동의 다양하고 재미난 요소들은 스케치 소재로서 일품입니다.

Buam-Dong Sketch Crawl

It was just fantastic weather, and the best day to draw...
I made my mind to be a enthusiastic member!

꽃동산

꽃동산
서울 중심부 바로 뒤편에 알록 달록 꽃동산이 펼쳐졌습니다.
인왕산과 북악산 사이에 옛스러움을 고스란히 간직한 마을 입니다.
높은 바위와 성곽이 자리잡고 있는 아래에 산 비탈에 맞춰서 지은 집과 언덕의 나무들이 멋지게 어울려 있습니다.
돌계단과 집들이 옹기 종기 마주보고 있는 모습이 정겹습니다.

55th World Wide SketchCrawl





   
How are you everyone ?
I am so lucky to join 55th World Wide SketchCrawl.
Buam-dong is one of my favorite sketching place.
It has old things and new ones at the same time, besides, not far from my house.
Yesterday, so many people visited Buam-dong, because it was weekend and so lovely day.
A little crowded but so energetic.
Several years ago, I was a Seoul urban sketcher member, but I couldn't to attend the meeting
because of personal reasons. It's been a long time to join the meeting.
I'll try again from now on Very thank you for all attending members
and I hope to see you next meeting!

It was a happy time to watch the old mill in buam, warm spring days.
I was amazed to see the old mill in Seoul.
