Sketches around Hyehwadong & Daehagro, Seoul

Hyehwadong Catholic Church, pen and watercolor, 24.3 x 35cm

Chang Myun's House at Hyehwadong, pencil and soft pastel, 21 x 29.6cm

building of the Federation of Artistic & Cultural Organizations of Korea, scheduled to move into the new building at Mokdong before long, pen and watercolor, 21 x 29.6cm

Daehagro is the familiar road from my childhood. Each time I visit there, I feel an indescribable nostalgia to the changed sceneries around my native place. I sketched a few buildings left unchanged, bring back my memory.

감사합니다~~ 어릴 때부터의 추억이 늘 담겨있는 곳이라 스케치 할수록 향수가 살아나오는 듯 합니다. 변화하는 소재를 재발견하는 맛도 있고요...
