sketches of building under remodelling and Seosomun apartment

I sketched this scene with yellow colored ginko tree stood near a building under remodelling at Sunhwa-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul.  Yellow and blue, red car caught my eye though the weather was gloomy with cloudy air.

Seosomun apartment, one of the oldest ones in Seoul, 
The oval shape of the apartment between rectangular buildings looked nice and fresh in spite of old age over 40 years.

요즘 거리가 너무 아름답습니다. 정동과도 가까운 서대문사거리의 순화동에서 스케치했습니다. 커다란 경찰청건물 옆의 서소문 아파트가 멋졌습니다. 40년 넘은 건물이 그 휘어진 모양으로 오히려 세련된 느낌을 주었구요. 자주 가고싶은 장소로 찜해두었습니다.
