#28th Sketchcrawl in Seoul

Hongik Univ.

Tugsum, Han river

pen and watercolor
한 달에 한 번 휴식같은 시간을 보내고 돌아오는 발걸음이 너무 뿌듯하고 좋습니다.
오늘은 뜻하지 않게 한강에서 좋은 소재로 그림도 그리고 하여 더욱 좋습니다.
이 좋은 느낌은 좋은 분들과 함께 시간을 나눌 수 있어서 더 배가 되는 것 같습니다.
모든 선생님 들께 감사하며..

drummer at Yangyang market

At Yangyang city, we could sketch the various features of traditional market. To support the marketing the young band was invited to encourage the merchants and customers. The rhythmical gestures made me feel like drumming with her. How excitingly she played!

I went to kangwon province with members of Outdoor Watercolor Group for painting. I sketched some of them who were painting on the spot. 40 members enjoyed three nights / four days' trip together. Sketching and painting in successive days would give various kinds of understanding and development to every participant.

Weekend in studio..

인물(자화상으로 그렸는데 영 닮지 않아서^^)

유화로 그린 그림이다. 아직 미완성이다. 어떻게 완성될지 기대된다.

This weekend is that it tries to draw a picture to pass the time.
That time very happy.

'Urban Hive' building at Kangnam-ku, Seoul

Last year I sketched this building curiously. It's said that the number of the circles are over 3800 with 1 meter in diameter. The building was designed by Kim In-chul and finished on July, 2008. This kind of new buildings changes the feature of Seoul day by day.

at the stores of Insa-dong, Seoul

Sketched at the Samick Musical Instrument store located in Chongro 2-ga. The black hat used for the traditional farmers' folk band after harvest usually and Haegum(Korean fiddle) were hung. And kinds of drums were there.

In another store I found the wood ring used for piercing the nostrill of cow, and then pulling the cow for cultivating the soil at countryside. The cow is a symbol of wealth. So people like to hang it at house wishing to be rich and praying for the protecting of ancestor. Sometimes cow means their previous parents at dreams. The wood wild geese mean the affection between the married couple. So Korean people like to have them at home for the happy marriage life.
