at Olympic Park, Seoul

I got to revisit the Olympic Park, near Jamsil, near the southeastern part of the city.  I had visited this before, once with friends, the other time to go to a Hyundai-sponsored Summer Concert.  The park was beautiful, with lots of amenities, ranging from rollerblading area and an ice-skating rink during the winter, to a public garden full of interesting sculptures, and an art museum, SOMA, to go with it.  This was my third visit, and it didn't fail to impress me with a mix of historical areas, interspersed with sports facilities.

grampas -- The first sketch was done near the entrance.  There were many areas with shades, and elderly grampas, joined together for a serious game of Chinese chess or just chit chat.  There was even a garden of lavender behind, so it felt peaceful, to be sitting and sketching there.

olympic park entrance -- This was the first sketch I did upon arriving at the Olympic Park.  There are columns of totem poles on both sides of the Peace Gate leading one towards the actual entrance with all the flags.  Each totem pole wears a funny expression, so I tried to capture that.  But it would have been nice to capture a whole row of columns so that the length of the grand entrance could 
be felt.

streetview -- This alleyway is the narrow corridor between two parts of the SOMA museum buildings.  Perhaps because of the long ramp leading up to it, or because of the narrowness of the corridor, it was a stark contrast to the open expanses of greenery both in front and behind, it felt very quaint and mysterious.  I stood there for a longer time than usual, trying to capture that mystic mood.
