pencil, watercolor, A 4
Yesterday I went to Seorak mountain(1708 m) located at Gangwon province with my family. The white diagonal lines shown in left are for cable car which runs 1,128 m from the entrance(222 m altitude) to Gwongeumseong(699 m altitude). I rode with my family and others; it carries 50 passengers at one time. Instead of climbing I stayed at the temple(Sinheungsa) and sketched the above one. I remember over thirty years had passed since I'd gone there. The roads or convenience facillities seem to be changed in better way for tourists. But the beautiful scenery of the mountain was the same as before. I would like to go there often.
어제 모처럼 가족과 설악산에 다녀왔어요. 가족들은 울산바위까지 올르고 저는 신흥사 주변을 구경하며 스케치도 좀 했습니다. 산은 여전히 아름다왔어요. 울산바위까지 엄첨 힘들었다고 하더군요. 오늘 길에 속초 중앙시장도 둘러 보았어요. 고속 버스가 2시간 반정도밖에 안걸려서 당일로 다녀오기에 충분했다는 것도 새로운 발견이었습니다. 아름다운 우리의 산하를 많이 그려보아야겠다는 각오도 한 여행이었습니다.

I sketched the above ones last January. Stuffs are not in order always.
They are not in order. But the features look natural and inspire me to dare to sketch.
아무래도 겨울이라 밖에서 그리는 것보다는 실내가 좋습니다.
막무가내로 나다니다가 감기 기침으로 고생많았어요.
지난 1월에 그린 책상위 풍경 그림을 올립니다.
건강한 몸으로 밖에서 그리고 싶습니다.
건강히 지내시기 바랍니다.

The area around Jongno-3ga(종로3가) is the origin of many famous film theatres, and a large number of shops and jewelry stores along the street near Jongmyo(Royal Shrine). In spite of the old downtown in central Seoul, redevelopment and reconstruction projects of this area are highly restricted now. So this area contains some interesting attractions from diverse cultures of historic Seoul between old and new buildings.
I enjoyed sketching the various scenes from the buildingscapes along the street around Jongno-3ga..
600년 넘도록 서울의 큰 축을 이루어 온 종로통의 중심지...
종묘와 탑골공원으로 이어지는 "서울과 삶"의 테마 문학 발상지...
시끌버끌 젊음과 삶에 지친 실버들이 뒤섞이는 다중문화 속을 헤치며
도시의 껍질을 하나씩 벗겨가며 스케치하기엔 더없이 새로운 장소입니다.
