I have been sketching cultural assets at the National Museum of Korea.
I just draw with pen and ink and painted it later after came back home
Though I can not draw in the outdoor area in cold weather, I had a good time because I could visit the museum and sketch.
현장에서 채색 못한 것은 집에와서 조금 채색을 했어요...
날씨가 추워도 박물관에서 어반스케치 하는 것도 재미있었습니다..

It is very cold weather throughout the week. Despite the violent winter wind, Seoul urban sketchers met at the National Museum of Korea for sketching on Wednesday this week. The panoramic scenes of the grand museum were exceptionally beautiful in harmony with a background of the snowy landscape. The museum were fulled with visitors including lots of students as a group, kids and their parents during winter vacation season. I drew a few sketches in and out the museum with a new feeling.

엄청난 양의 우리의 역사문화유산과 다양한 프로그램을 담은
국내 최대의 국립중앙박물관은 스케치 소재의 박물관이기도 합니다.
칼바람 추운 날씨 속에 열정을 발휘하신 스케쳐님들께 성원을 보냅니다~~

Urbansketching at the National Museum of Korea

Started drawing this one first. It's national treasure No.47. National Museum of Korea, Yongsan.
At the museum, just drew the line and shade, and coloured it after because of the regulation. We cannot use watercolour inside of the museum, but I desperately wanted to colour it because it is made of gilt bronze. So I coloured it after at home. There are two more drawings that I used watercolour, and all they are same as this one. The security staff warned me even when I used pencil wrap case which can contain many pens and pencils for the drawings. I though it too much for "SAFE" but anyway it's their one of rules so I followed it.
These two












10 story pagoda. made of stone. It is literally 'in the museum' most of them are not. However this one, they wanted to protect the tower from the acid rain and other harmful chemicals. Anyway I couldn't draw the full except the top part. These two are the same way as above.




There was a café, mostly tea, coffee, and dessert. I didn't order sweets (they're selling Korean traditional rice cake as dessert and mostly it is quite sweet. Try some if you like.) It's on the 3rd floor/4th ground in the building. They sell quite good green tea. It will warm you.



Only one landscape drawing, drew it inside of the building. Some of you may ask why it is coloured inside. There was a lounge at the corner of the 2nd floor, (luckily found it ;)) and there were great views outside. I couldn't help drawing it.


In the lounge, there were two more Seoul urban sketchers. We all drew the view of outside.



Middle Hall of the Museum


India & Southeast Room of the Museum


 A view from café on the 2nd floor
It was about 4:20pm. so I wanted to express the light and shadow from the doors.
It was first time to join the Seoul Urbansketchers and was a pleasure time.
Cannot wait for the next drawing time.

Drawing at the National Museum of Korea

















                 It was  biting cold the day before yesterday.
                 So, I used my car, and we worked inside of the
                 building, National Museum of Korea.
                 There are so many National Treasures,but I could't
                 see them. As you know, we had another task of drawing ㅠㅠ
                 It's weekday, not crowded, rather solemn.
                 Here and there I could see lots of students and people
                 listening to the guide's explanation . The sights looks good .
                 I drew a picture comfortably in that atmosphere...
               

                 무척이나 추운날씨지만  박물관은 주차가 가능하고 실내작업을
                 하므로 추위는 별 걱정이 되지 않았다.
                 유물을 어떤방법으로 그려야할지가...관건.
                 주중이라 붐비지 않았고 오히려 약간 엄숙한 분위기..
                 방학을 맞은 많은 학생들과 일반인들이 가이드의 설명에
                 귀를 기울이는 모습이 여기저기에서 보였다.
                 그 분위기에 젖어 잠시나마 세상걱정 내려놓고...
                 그림삼매경에 빠졌다.

Sketches at the National Museum of Korea, Yongsan-gu, Seoul

exhibited books in glass case

Buddha stone sculpture

six pieces of bamboo picture scrolls by Jo Hee Ryong (1789 - 1866)

exhibition room of white ceramic vases

wooden furniture

wooden bench designed after wooden furniture 


 canon

scene seen from the 2nd floor with part of Gyeongcheonsa Pagoda

king's chair of Joseon dynasry with big painting in the background, which was made by 65 % of real scale in Gyeongbokgung(palace)







It was very cold though we couldn't compare it with the terrible icy weather in north America. But some great sketchers challenged to draw outdoor. Every time I visit there I feel just small in front of all those masterpieces. We enjoyed both appreciating treasures and drawing them. Being in the space full of great works would enhance our taste too.

Thank you all!

요즘같은 추위에 국립중앙박물관을 방문하는 것만해도 보람있는 일이라고 생각됩니다. 거기에 한점 두점 그려나가면서 선조들의 피땀과 애환이 담긴 보물들을 가까이 보는 기회를 자주 가졌으면 합니다. 추운 날씨에 참여하신 분들께 감사드립니다.

참여하신 분들 : 이용환, 이충근, 한정선, 최정인, 김미옥, 조은비(새로 오신 분), 유병화

정동 전망대에서




드로잉 장소인  서울역에  늦게  도착했습니다.
다른분들은  서울역서    스케치를 하고  광화문으로  이동하셨더군요
신  시청사는  처음 와봤는데  ~  서울에  가보지  않은곳이  정말  많은것같습니다
볼거리도  그릴소재도  정말 많은 서울입니다.
예전에  올라갔던    건물  전망대에서   몇점 스케치를 했습니다.
최고의  스케치장소  입니다.
