Yesterday YH Lee and MK Kim met for sketching around Seoul City Hall. Though it was cloudy and rainy a little lots of citizens came to enjoy the weekend and the various events such as Jeongdong Night Culture festival for citizens, among which the American embassy opened its garden for citizens for two days. People lined up in rows to enter out of interest to have a look because it was the first open to public since 1976. We wanted to see it but one hour was ahead to enter, so we moved to the city hall. Fortunately there was a music performance which was held once a month by citizen project with concept "Citizens Hall provides relaxation and comfort". We were lucky to meet such wonderful event without any information in advance. We couldn't pass the chance to draw the musicians above all. It kept for three hours. While undergoing the show the announcer Moon So-Ri asked me to come to stage and interviewed me what we were doing and why. I told her and audience about urban sketching. It's very unusual for both the players and sketchers to share the scene directly. She showed one watercolor sketch of 10cm to audience, they applauded! After the performance ended she came to us and talked about our activity. She told she was very impressed having portraits of YH Lee on the spot. Sharing activity and results for public gave a great joy for all.
어제 김미경샘, 이용환샘과 시청서소문 별관에서 만나 그림그리다가 비가 좀 오길래 시청 청사로 갔어요. 광장에는 많은 인파가 토요일을 즐기고 있었어요. 청사 안에 뜻밖에도 "토요일은 청이 좋아" 행사가 있었어요. 3시부터 젊은 가수들의 공연이 있다고 해서 맨 앞에 자리잡고 관객도 그리고 뒤켠의 바이올린 연주자도 그렸어요. 본공연에 앞서서 리허설이 있더군요. 키도 맞추고 하는 일인가본데 우리는 티비에서 그냥 보기만 했는데 전의 과정이 복잡하더군요. 그러는 동안 연주자들을 그릴 수 있어서 좋았구요. 본 연주하는데 아마도 저희가 스케치하는 모습을 유심히 보셨던 문소리 아나운서께서 저를 무대로 불러서 이것 저것 물어부셔서 우리 활동을 짧게 소개하는 기회가 있어서 보람있었어요. 이선생님이 연주자 스케치 한것과 아나운서님 인물 드로잉을 선사하면서 서로가 기쁜 마음이었습니다. 비오는 날에도 스케치하자고 제안하신 김미경선생님 감사합니다. 덕분에 좋은 시간 보냈어요!
