aerial ladder for moving

pencil and watercolor, A 4

An office at banpo building located at Nonhyundong was moving using aerial ladder. Moving gives interesting subjects for sketchers. Trucks, ladders, laborers, desks, and other belongings form many kinds of composition in the open space. Today I saw this scene. I started at once and finished with watercolors. Men related with the work came and saw the drawing. When I left they asked whether I would correct(add) or not. I answered 'mostly not, but I'd think after being dried completely'. And I didn't.

Sewoon Shopping Mall is a shopping area located between Jongno 3-ga and Toegyero 3-ga, which was the modernization icon of the city in the 1960s. The shopping area is well known for selling electronics. But recently, the Seoul metropolitan government began demolishing its buildings, starting with Hyundai Arcade, with the intention of building tree-covered plazas in their place.
The area around Sewoon shopping centre will be reconstructed to constitute central Seoul. Lots of old aged buildings in the neighborhood  harmonize with each other spontaneously. I will visit and sketch around the worn-out buildings frequently before demolition is accelerated.
서울 현대사의 애환과 함께 해 온 세운상가 주변은 남아있는 스케치의 보물상자라고 할 수 있겠습니다.

sketches on small paper pad

at Nonhyundong, pen & pastels, 12 x 16 cm

removal of crane at construction field at Kukidong, pen and watercolor, 12 x 16 cm

I began to sketch the first one sitting on the terrace of a coffee shop under the awning. While keeping on adding colors it was raining. I found that the left side of trousers was wet by raindrops after I finished. And I took a photo in a hurry in order to leave the place turning the sketch clockwise by mistake!

2009년 가을을 꺼내 보았습니다

pencil(6B), pastels, A 4

parking lot of Noryangjin Fish Market, pencil, watercolor, pastel, A 4

I dropped in a small eating house located at Noryangjin Fish Market in Seoul, the largest fish market in Korea, perhaps. After I ordered a dish I started to draw her who was trimming vegetable in the kitchen. I could finish with pencil before the food was served. I had tried to keep sketching there on a fine day but I couldn't due to the call from my mother. I may go there again for sketching because I found so many attractive subjects to draw. Hope to go there with Seoul sketchers someday.

at Deoksugung Palace from archive

25 x 25 cm, pencil & watercolor
Years ago, it was possible to use watercolor at the palace. These days it's strictly forbidden for the protection of the cultural property.

Years ago, I created this collage work with a motive of the palace and a church at Jeongdong street nearby. Though it's not a drawing made on the spot, I post this for the reference related with the scenery of the palace..

It rained with thunder. Six sketchers participated in. The nice atmosphere of the palace in raining cauaght all of us to stay there though we had planned originally to move to the Jeongdong street after lunch. We kept sketching till 5 p.m in the quiet palace by the rare visitors due to rain. Though we got chilled sketching here and there in rain we enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the palace located in the center of Seoul across the city hall. Thank you all for the participation looking forward to seeing a lot of results in the palace! Please visit here for more information here.
