Dongdaemun Design Plaza

Hi I am Yun YoungSook. Nice to meet you.
We met to draw on 21st June.

Dongdaemun Design Plaza looks like spaceship landed on a city.
The atmosphere felt like walking into the future.
I was amazed by the harmony of stream form and cement bridge.

Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) is located in the center of Korea's trendy Dongdaemun fashion district. DDP was designed by Zaha Hadid, the world's architect, and opened on 
March 21, 2014. It will serve as a key venue for design-related shows and conferences, exhibitions, and other events and gatherings. The external appearance of DDP is beyond anyone's expectation. That looks like a fantastic spaceship with free-flowing curved forms. Recently, I used to sketch this attractive subject several times while under construction, and always impressed by the powerful, curving forms of gigantic buildings.
Last Saturday, I sketched the atypical forms of elongated structures in many points with Seoul usk members.
동대문 역사문화공원의 새 명물 DDP는 비정형 곡선의 거대하고 환상적인 건축물로 
보는 시점마다 다양한 구도가 변화무쌍하며 스케쳐들에게 무한한 소재를 제공합니다.
서울 성곽 복원과 함께 꿈과 애환이 서린 동대문 운동장의 옛 모습을 떠올리며~~~
논란도 많았지만 이제는 어엿한 서울의 새로운 상징물로 친근해지기를 기대합니다.
스케치 마당에 새로 오신 분들을 진심으로 환영합니다!!

(저는 이상하게 이미지를 업로드 하면 
이렇게 콩알만한 사이즈로 알아서 줄어들어요.
그래서 의도하지 않게 매번 작게 올리게 되네요^^;;)

세번째 모임 참여.
여전히 저에게 밖에서 보면서 그린다는건 어렵지만, 
전보다 함께 그리는 재미가 느껴져 즐거웠어요^^

It was my third participation in urban sketchers.
 Outdoor sketching is still hard to me,
but enjoy the attitude was better than ever.

지난 토요일에 어반스케쳐 모임에 처음 참석한 한정화(Han Tao)입니다.
이틀전에 모임을 알게 되어 참석했는데요, 좋은 경험이었습니다. 
같이 스케치를 하고, 오후 4시에 그림을 함께 보는 것이 무척 좋았습니다. 
다음번에도 함께하고 싶습니다.

처음으로 어반스케치 나간 김윤희 입니다~
참으로 즐거운 시간이었습니다.
다음달에도 뵈요~!!

동대문 디자인 플라자, 하네뮬레 D&S 스케치북    42 x 30 cm, 윈저 뉴턴 수채물감
처음 그린 그림이라 제일 뜻깊었던 그림이예요.

영 마음에 안드는 어수선한 그림이 되버렸어요...

저기 중앙에  ( ? ) 물음표 를 그리기 위해 그린 그림..ㅎㅎ
왼쪽으로는 환한 빛이 보이고 , 중앙에는 물음표가 있었거든요.
제게는  <인생의 물음표>  라는 제목이었는데...
그 느낌을 살리진 못한 그림이라 아쉽네요.

어두운 터널을 나갈때,  빛이 촤악! 하고 나오는 느낌을 표현하고 싶었어요..

처음이라 엄청 설레였었는데..두근두근..
오랫만에  야외 드로잉하니까 너무 좋았어요...
맨날 잡지만 보고 그리다가, 야외에서 그리니  스트레스가 풀리는 기분....
여러번 더 하다보면 혼자서 바닥에 앉아 그릴수 있을 것 같아요.

다음달에도 고고씽이예요~!
모두 반가웠어요~!

June sketchcrawl at Dongdaemun Design Plaza

I sketched the street scene as soon as I got off the bus looking at the DDP across the broad road. Big and dark objects seen behind the flags is DDP. It looked like space vehicles landed in downtown.

Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) opened on March 21, 2014 after years of construction since September 1996. There were lots of discussions about the characteristic design of the building designed by Zaha Hadid at the area of stadium. Beyond the arguments about the proper purposes and usage of the gigantic buildings we, Seoul Urban Sketchers, had exciting time for sketching in many points in and out. 
Welcome new comers! ; Yang Young-seon, Kim Youn-hee, Kim Kyung-hee, Lee Weon-seok, Han Joung-hwa, Also thank you all the participants: YH Lee, SH Kim, HJ Kim, KS Song, YS Yun, KO Kwon, Lucy Baik, BH Yoo.
