I've sketched around Seoul Station many times for several years. Especially,I've always been fascinated by the scenic beauty of the Former Seoul Railroad Station building, connected with the new Seoul Station. The Former Seoul Railroad Station was constructed in an Eclectic Renaissance style in 1925. The building was distinguished by the classical symmetry in its overall composition and its non-classical features, including the central dome, a small steeple and the wings that were attatched to the central part of the building.
Currently, the building is composed of cultural venues for exhibition and performance, along with educational facility.
Last Saturday, I sketched the attractive historic building at difference angles.
눈부신 유리와 금속판으로 들쭉날쭉 채워져가는 도심의 하늘 아래
소담한 초록빛 돔과 벽돌 마디마디, 하얀 기둥 장식이 아름답게 비친다.
100년 세월의 낯익은 建築 樣式의 뒤안길에는~~~
근대사의 시련과 영욕이 "우리 시대의 거울"속에 녹아 흐르고
수많은 사람들의 스쳐간 발자욱 속에 나의 일기장도 같이 쌓여간다.
서울驛舍는 서울의 歷史....오늘을 그리며 서울의 미래를 상상하는 즐거움~~

(처음 나오신 분들의 신선한 스케치들이 감동적입니다! 진심으로 환영합니다.)

Seoul station is always full of vitality. People are moving for their destination, leaving, meeting. And the big pane glass in food court on 3rd floor attracts us and provides all the scenery in the station. Though we've sketched there several times, we could find fresh fleeings with
changing surroundings. So I hope to see more n that station next time. 
Thank you all the participants!

서울역은 항상 활기가 넘칩니다. 끊임없이 움직이는 승객들과 가족, 인근 백화점 방문객들로 인해 언제고 생동감을 느끼게 됩니다. 그동안 여러번 서울역을 스케치해왔지만 그야말로 번번이 새로운 모습을 보게 되구요. 변화하는 날씨도 색다른 분위기를 줍니다. 
어제 참석해주신 모든 분들께 감사드립니다.

Sketching together at Seoul station

It was cloudy all day. Nine sketchers including four new comers, Park Jea Wook, Oh Sul Hee, Lee Seung Chul, and Lee Jin Kyung,  participated in. As always the station with complex department was crowded with passengers and visitors.  We of course enjoyed the meeting and shared all the results encouraging each other. Hoping all the sketchers to post their works I post the photoes in advance. Thank you all.
오늘흐린날씨에도 불구하고 여러분이 창여해주셨습니다. 이용환샘, 이정권샘, 이상진샘, 김소형샘,  유병화외에 새로이 오신 박제욱샘, 오설희샘,이승철 학생, 이진경학생이 진지하게 스케치해주셨구요. 세시반 스케치마친후에 감상회도  가졌습니다. 좋은 작품 많이 올려주시기 바라며 오늘 사진 먼저 올립니다. 감사합니다!

at Incheon wharf, Incheon city

pencil, watercolor, 32 x 24 cm

pencil 8B, 13.5 x 21 cm

Today I went to Incheon wharf. Weather was very good, shiny and breezing. I took a place beside a truck for a handful of shade when I sketched the first one. Though I saw the second scene at first I sketched it later because I didn't carry water, so I tried it just before I left the wharf. There was no place to hide from sunlight. But it was autumn anyhow. I could finish the second one. It took 20 minutes from drawing to washing. The first one took one hour to finish. 

오늘 모처럼 인천에 다녀왔습니다. 뜨거운 계절에는 좀 힘든 곳이라 요즘 좋은 것같습니다. 그래도 가을볕이 따갑기는 해도 바람이 불어주어 할만했구요. 언제나 변화무쌍한 인천에서 두점그리고 돌아와서 뿌듯했습니다. 오가는 전철에서는 인물스케치좀 하고요.

I usually sketch buildings before my eyes, searching familiar places in my spare time. As for me, the old fashioned buildings are more attractive than the up-to-date style buildings in feeling. These works are sketched on the spot around my familiar streets from place to place recently.

낯익은 장소~~낯익은 거리~~ 낯익은 건물들을 그릴 때마다
어제의 새로움이 오늘의 낯익은 모습으로 변해가는 것을 지켜 보며는
세월의 켜가 쌓여가는 소리만 회상의 발자욱 따라 들려오는 듯 합니다.
