sketches around Gwanghwamun, Seoul

Korean Style Houses remained, surrounded by new buildings at Sajik-dong, next to the Chongro Culture & Gym Center. The roofs seemed to be repaired temporarily waiting to be redeveloped soon. pen, 18 x 25 cm


Walking to the Cheonggyechun to sketch the Seoul Lantern Festival I saw the home-delivery service man who was resting for a while leaning to his motorbike. After I finished the drawing I talked with him for a while asking him to hold the sketch book to take a photo. I thought he was a young guy looking back of his feature when I was sketching. I asked him whether the attire was a uniform of his company. He denied and added that he wore the leather jacket for protecting himself not to be hurt by any accident. I told him that he looked so nice and wished his safe running.

Seoul City is holding the Seoul Lantern Festival on the stream of Chunggyechun from Nov. 4, to Nov. 20, 2011.  I sketched two kinds of animal, rabbit and mouse. It's said that there many kinds of lanterns produced from Korea, Japan, Philippines, and so on are exhibited.  All the lanterns will be lighted from 5 pm to 11 pm. It looked so great when the lanterns were lighted on last Saturday evening. I could see after the last sketchcrawl at Noryangjin Fish Market on the way of going home. You can see more here.

오늘도 역시....
스케치하신 등들의 연필선들이 제가 덩실 덩실 춤추듯 자유로움이 느껴집니다
저도 가봐야겠어요

오전에 가시는 것이 좋겠어요. 저는 오늘 연필하고 펜만 갖고 가서 색칠이 좀 아쉬웠구요. 죽 따라내려가면 조형물이 많지만 12간지 동물들의 역동감에 매료되었습니다. ^ ^

ㅎ ~ 역쉬 좀전에 둘이서 갔다왔습니다 스케치북넣고..유선생님 어디선가 스케치하실것 같아 어둠속 등불 사이사이 찾았지요 ㅋㅋ 그림그리기엔 낮이 좋을듯..밤은 아름다웠지만..졸려서 그림 못그렸어요.전 오늘 아침 백사마을도 갔다왔더니 에너지가 없었어요~

저도 밤에는 못그리겠던데요. 지난 토요일 저녁에는 인파가 굉장했어요. 두분이 즐거우셨겠습니다! ^ ^

피곤해도 이제 행사하는 장소들은 틈틈히 찾아 다닐려고 하고 있어요^^
참 재밌는 행사였던 것 같아요~

행사야말로 도심에서 그릴만한 소재같습니다. 목적도 있고, 관심있는 사람들도 모이고요. 기자같은 시각에 그림을 곁들인다고나할까요. ^ ^
