잠시 시간을 보내야 될 일이 생겨 파리바게트 빵집에서 커피 한 잔 시키고 앉아 있었습니다.

빵집에 꽤 손님이 많더군요. 식사를 빵으로 하는 사람들이 많은 듯 합니다.

우리집 식구들도 빵을 좋아하면 편할 텐데.

정말 더운 여름날에는 뜨거운 국 끓이고 반찬 만드는 일이 지겹습니다.

At the Nagwon Musical Instrument Arcade

비오는 내내 집에 콕 박혀있었습니다.
비가 들이치니 창문을 열 수도 없고 선풍기 두 대를 열심히 돌리며 아이들과 종일을 좁은 집 안에서 보냈습니다.
그리고 깨닫게 된 건,
"여긴 내가 살고 싶은 집이 아니야..."

[July 26, 2011] Near Seoul City Hall

[July 26, 2011] @ "fashion into art" exhibition

삼성생명 빌딩 "PLATEAU"전시관에서 진행중인
Fashion into Art <보그 코리아> 창간 15주년 특별전에서

across the Sajik park to Gwanghwamun

at Pilundong, pencil, watercolor, 30 x 40 cm
When I crossed the Sajik road I could see the blue building with irregular windows. A man seated on a red chair looking at the street. I began to sketch him at first because I was not sure that he'd stay long there.

at Naejadong, charcoal, 30 x 40 cm
I was walking down to Gwanghwamun. These days there are so many glass wall buildings that the reflected image on walls made attractive focus in street scenery. In the small resting place I could sketch this thankfully. It seemed to rain soon getting darker.

at Gwanghwamun, pen and watercolor, 30 x 40 cm
Arriving at the Gwanghwamun, Sejong Street, I tried to sketch the Gwanghwamun at first, but I changed my mind looking back. The bridge between the Integrated Government buildings seemed worthwhile to draw.  After finishing this I took a bus coming home. At last it rained heavily while my being at bus. But finishing sketches gives energy in spite of being caught in the rain without umbrella.

Red Parasol (2)


중복날. 친구네 집에서 옷닭을 해 먹었습니다.
닭을 안쳐놓고 장기 한판을 두며 기다리고 있습니다.
참고로 저희 아저씨가 이겼다는^^

I took a photo at the guitar shop.

Though it was a humid, hot day 11 participants came for sketching including three new comers, Kim Sang Deuk, Kim Kyung Min, and Park Ji Woong,  who were greeted warmly by all other sketchers. Inside the arcade it was cool by air-conditioning; so we could enjoy sketching on 2nd and 3rd floors. The arcade locates near Insadong, the traditional cultural street where many galleries  are clustered. And close to the arcade locates Tapgol park where the Independence Statement was announced on March 1st, 1919. Thank you all the participants!

우리집의 풍경

  매일 보는 감나무와 항아리들이지만
그림의 한컷이 되니 느낌이 다르다.
울집 멍멍이들...이리저리 움직이다가 스케치하는
 것을 아는지 빤히 쳐다본다.(쉽독과 진돗개)
