Last Saturday, we Seoul sketchers visited to Ssamzigil in Insa-dong. The Ssamzigil is a square building, not a street. It has four floors and is consist of a Korean rice cake shop, a paper hanger, an antique shop and Korean restaurants, etc. It's a quite low rise structure made out of concrete, metal, glass and wood definitely feeling modern yet warm and approachable by having open ramp style passage ways with a very slight slope. It is seen as a Korean culture complex, what is more it's so unique and has set a sort of new direction for good old Insa-dong. 
The weather was so fine and we amused ourselves by looking on the variegated sceneries and sketching here and there in the fantastic building. Welcome to join the USK Seoul, Bahk Joung-yeon and Han Jeong-seon!

어쩜 이만큼 빠르면서 디테일하게도 그리실 수 있는지 놀랍기만 합니다. 생동감 넘치는 스케치 잘 감상하고 갑니다.

정형, 비례, 균형, 소실점...
건축가의 시각으로부터 자유로워지고 싶은 화가로서의 충동이 스케치할 때마다 그자리에서 마구 풀어 담고 싶은 열정에 빠져들게 합니다.
