평화를 얻는 명동성당

           친구 정숙이의 초대로 명동성당 어반스케치에 처음 입문~~ㅎ
           위그림 상단에 예쁜여자 그림이 나의 모습이다
           친구가 그린 그림속에 나는 평화롭게 느껴졌다.
          하긴 복잡한 명동 거리에 이렇게 조용한 곳이 있다니
          행복하고 즐거운 토요일 오후를 보냈다.  

 오후에 부족한 솜씨로 그린그림이지만
평화를 상징하는 명동성당 기도하는 장소는
내마음에 들었다
그림을 그리며 평화를 주소서 조용히
함께 기도하며 그림을 그렸다.

#53rd World Wide SketchCrawl at Myeong-dong

These are my first urban sketches! I was 30 minutes late and felt little bit nervous when I saw other people already started to draw. But few minutes later, I realized I never concern whether other peoples are looking at me or not.  I really enjoyed freedom among many pedestrians in Myungdong streets in the afternoon.


지난주 토요일 처음으로 어반 스케치 모임에 합류한 이지현입니다. 이렇게 자유로운 분위기 속에서 그림을 그려본 게 초등학교 사생대회 이후로 처음인 것 같습니다. 사람이 가득한 명동 한복판에서 다른 사람들의 시선은 신경 쓰지 않고 그림을 그리다 보니 갑자기 일상에서 튕겨져 나온 듯 자유롭다라는 생각이 들었습니다.  늦었지만 어디에서든 미술을 제대로 배우고 싶어 여기저기 찾아 다녔는데, 이제 보니 나의 열정과 많은 연습이 더 중요하다는 생각이 들었습니다. 1월에 또 뵙겠습니다.

Last Saturday, for the 53rd World Wide SketchCrawl, we Seoul sketchers gathered around Myeong-dong which is one of the most famous tourist attractions. We met and sketched at the Baerongnamu Cafe on the 12th floor, rooftop garden of UNESCO House building. After lunch, we moved and sketched freely here and there near Myeong-dong Cathedral.
I sketched some colorful sceneries around the cafe and the fascinating Myeong-dong street. It was such a nice autumn day!
청명한 가을하늘 아래... 밝은 마을 명동이 활짝 열리면
크고 작은 다채로운 빌딩과 휘황찬란한 색상이 뒤섞여
낮에는 햇살따라 밤에는 조명따라 변해가는 모습과
실핏줄같이 얽힌 골목에서 쏟아지고 흩어지는 인파의 물결
낭만과 유행, 소음과 경건함이 얽힌 도심의 오케스트라~ 
명동은 언제 보아도 살아있는 스케치 천국입니다.

#53rd World Wide SketchCrawl, Myeong-dong

Myeong-dong cathedral with Namsan Tower in the background. This was my first experience drawing with fellow urban sketchers and I highly enjoyed it. 

A view of the Chinese school in Myeong-dong. We started the day at a beautiful rooftop cafe that had many great views over the nearby shopping distract.

Everyone collected their work together at the end of a great day. We were really lucky with the weather and there was plenty of inspiration around. I would highly recommend coming along for the next SketchCrawl Seoul.

It was very fine neither hot as of last summer nor cold or windy. 10 sketchers gathered including five new comers. We started at the Baerongnamu Cafe located at the 12th rooftop garden of Korean National Commission for UNESCO(유네스코한국위원회). Myeong-dong is one of the most frequented downtown in Seoul where lots of tourists visit to see and experience lively mood of Seoul. There the building stands in the busiest street. But the rooftop garden has somewhat different atmosphere by seemingly natural feature though it was artificially cultivated. Nobody would imagine how the machine room was changed into such a nice space. 
After having lunch we kept sketching here and there. On the way to the cathedral I found a big bazaar was held at the ground of cathedral. People were busy to see and buy goods. I sketched two seated on chair comfortably. Because the church is beautiful and historical it's loved by newly wedding couple for taking photos. While drawing the church a couple was posing by the order of photographer. I captured them too.
At 3:30 we met at the backyard to see our works. Sharing and appreciating was there.

Participants : Lee Yong-hwan, Yun Young-sook, Lee Joung-sook, Kim Yeon-jae, Yoo Byung-hwa, new comers - William, Yun Hyang-ran, Park Ha-young, Park Hyoun-sook, Yi Ji-hyun. 

Thank you all!

Few days ago I visited  Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, Seocho-gu (서초구) in Seoul two times.
Seoul St. Mary's Hospital is one of the affiliated hospitals of Catholic University of Korea (가톨릭 대학교 서울 성모병원) and is part of the CMC (Catholic Medical Center) network based on its 80 years of history. The hospital is conveniently located within minutes by car, subway, bus, or on foot from many of Seoul’s international companies, hotels, and government buildings.
It was fine weather to sketch, and the atmosphere around the hospital was very pleasant enjoying the beautiful fall season. I sketched some colorful scenes in and outside the 
hospital, especially the concert for patients was a touching performance.
가톨릭대 부속 서울 성모병원~~
넘치는 방문객, 기다리는 환자들과 봉사자,
부산한 의료진들 사이로 자애로운 성모상,
자연과 음악이 어우러지는 힐링 콘서트...
고속터미널의 숨가쁜 시간표를 떠나
아픔과 치유의 시간을 함께 하며 
이틀간 스케치 삼매경에 빠졌습니다.

Pastel sketches at Children's Grand Park

Days ago I went to Children's Grand Park located at Neungdong. I go often for sketching and taking rest. I began one sketch at the amusement park where lots of fun and excitement are there. It was sunny. Hearing the thrilling sound of rising train machine I drew smiling. After finishing it I moved to botanical garden and found an interesting spot where a booth was being painted by several painters. Previous green color was changed into yellow. And I saw some caricaturists under red parasols. Parents were looking at the drawing of their kids. The strong colors at that scene were very impressive. I felt refreshed breathing cool air and sketching.

며칠젼 능동에 있는 어린이 대공원에 다녀왔어요. 자주 가는 곳이지만 계절에 따라 달리 보이는 풍경과 뜻하지 않게 만나는 풍경이 있어 기대감을 갖고 가게 됩니다. 역시나 재미난 품경을 만나게 되어 즐거운 스케치를 했습니다.
