Han-kook Ilbo(Newspaper publishing company) viewed from Kyung-bok Palace

Last Saturday was so cold and strong windy day for November. But Seoul sketchers were deep in urban-sketching all day with patience.
I sketched wandering through the downtown from Kyung-bok Palace to Insa-dong. I'm sure continuous drawing on the surroundings of Gwanghwamun is very useful for Seoul sketchers.

Heukseokdong's late autumn


멀리 효사정이 보입니다. 옛 효사정(孝思亭)은 조선 세종 때 한성부윤과 영의정을 지낸 공숙공 노한(盧閈 1376~1443)이 노량진 한강변에 정자를 짓고 3년간 시묘를 했으며 모친을 그리워했던 곳입니다. 현재의 효사정은 일제 강점기때 일본신사가 있었 곳에 신축된 정자로 서울시의 우수 경관 조망명소로 선정된 곳입니다.

sketches in subway

A 4 size, pencil
Yesterday I went to Seoul Grand Park for sketching. I just enjoyed the scenery and doodling the animal. On the way coming home I saw the three persons on wheel chairs. I sketched them. The third person was reading book drawn in the right bottom of the paper. They seemed to move to some place together.

A few days ago, I took a trip to Turkey with BH Yoo and several Korean tourists. A number of cultural heritage and architecture are dreamy and mysterious. I was deeply impressed by Byzantine style and natural resources. It was a meaningful tour for me to get an opportunity to sketch well-known sceneries.
