I enjoyed watching baseball games at the Gocheok Sky Dome for three days from Aug. 19 to Aug. 21, 2019. The games between Goyang Heroes and NC of KBO Futures League were held there. Games were played from 2 pm. People didn't come much though visitors could use seats with table for free. Inside was really cool. And the players were very good. Sometimes small parts of audiences shouted cheering the players. I tried to practice the changing poses of them. It was really hard to capture the pitchers' nice features. I'd like to go there often both enjoying games and drawing their wonderful scenes.
지난 3일간 고척 스카이 돔에서 히어로즈와 엔씨간의 경기를 보았어요. 2군 경기라고 하지만 기량은 1군 못지 않았다고 생각됩니다. 오히려 야구자체에만 집중하며 성실하게 경기에 임한다고 생각되었구요. 2군 경기라 그런지 아니면 2시 경기라 그런지 무료 입장에 테이블 좌석을 사용할 수 있는 최적의 조건임에도 관중은 너무나 없었구요. 에어컨 바람이 솔솔 불어오는지 실내는 시원해서 나중에는 졸기도 했구요. 움직이는 선수의 모습을 잡아 그리는 것이 심히 어려웠고 셋째 날에는 투수와 대기 선수의 동작을 많이 연습했습니다. 앞으로도 종종 가서 경기도 즐기고 드로잉도 많이 해보려고 합니다.

It's summer with high temperature, which makes me fearful to sketch outdoor. I try to use time in subway trains. Inside is cool. I love to read books or to draw people. I hope to share the various life styles of our companions who live together in same space through these small paper drawings.
너무 더워서 요 며칠은 집에서 지냅니다. 나가더라도 서늘한 지하철에서 스케치 하는 것으로 만족합니다. 동시대를 살아가는 동반자라고 생각하면 모르는 분들이라도 애정이 갑니다. 모두들 건강하고 행복한 시간이 되기 바랍니다.
We, Seoul Urban Sketchers,had a regular meeting in
National Museum of Korea last Saturday
Nice weather, convenient transportation, admission
free, everything was good for drawing
I visited here last year, so l'd like to go outside this time
and i found the garden behind the Museum like
hidden place. It was large, not crowded, antique
stone towers and Buddhas were scattered here and there
While Drawing in this place ,l felt the mood of meditation
Anyway it was a lucky day.~
작년에 이어 올해, 두번째 국립중앙박물관.
장소와는 전혀 상관없는 그림.
붕어빵에 붕어가 없듯 그림엔 정작 박물관의 모습은 없다
창밖풍경,뒷정원의 석조물.내용은 아니어도 사인은 국립중앙박물관
깜박 잊고 있다 부랴부랴 오후에 참석,출석 도장찍고 수다도 떨고
그림도 그리고...충분한 하루~~

Last Saturday, it was a nice day to sketch. The National Museum of Korea (국립중앙박물관), located in Yongsan, was crowded with visitors who were interested in culture and art. We Seoul urban sketchers had several winter sketching events here. In the summer, the atmosphere of the museum was more lively than in the winter. The great museum is a large cultural facility in the Yongsan Family Park in central Seoul, and we can explore the history of art and enjoy culture regardless of weather conditions. The unique exhibition spaces in the magnificent building and numerous collections and cultural assets of various genres offer a lot of sketching subject. Various special exhibitions, weekend concerts, and harmonious elements of the surrounding landscape and museum buildings are colorful painting materials. Especially, the orchestra concert in the open plaza heightened the cultural festive mood.
I was touched by the craftsmanship of many artists and sketched several scenes that I had not previously painted. And I felt grateful to our ancestors, artists, architects, and citizens who share culture living in the present age. I was sorry that I couldn't draw all the materials, but I left the museum, taking the next chance.
