It was a spring-like day at the middle of cold winter. We gathered in front of the movie theater in Hyhill Outlet at 10:30am and drew until 4pm. Time goes really fast whenever I draw with urban sketchers. Not only the drawing, but the chatting with the ones in love with drawing always make me happy.
I found drawing inside a building is more difficult than drawing from the outside. After seeing what others drew, I realized that I had trouble in framing things out. The thousands of figures inside the building were overwhelming and now I understand why some people make frames with their hands(fingers) to see the objects before drawing.
The area used to be industrial complex but it now is where many fashion outlets are located. I wondered if they were gaining sufficient profits because they seemed so many and I heard the consumption's been frozen. Are they having relative profits against department stores thanks to the long recession? I don't know.
One of the sketchers told me that there was an exposition around 1960 in this area. One of the exhibition goods was pencil that didn't easily break which made people quite surprised. The time when this area was full of farms and rice paddies, the time when the solid pencil was so rare, I wish I can have a chance to live the time just for one day.
I drew this in a bus in my way to Seoul one day and started to feel nauseous because of the motion sickness. I was so close to finish this so I kept drawing and when I'd done I was about to throw up. I was happy to have it completed but I'd never draw in a bus again.
