Seoul Forest is a large park in Seongdong-gu, Seoul. The park is an eco-friendly zone appreciated not only by the people of the city but also those visiting Seoul. Seoul Forest Park (서울숲) is rapidly developing into the premium city-park of Korea like Hyde Park in London and Central Park in New York. Seoul Forest Park  was opened in June 2005. The park has a long and diverse history over the years. A water purification plant was established here in 1908 to provide water for the royal family and citizens. Another area of the park was turned into an industrial area in the 1950’s. Seoul Horse Race Track, a golf course and a sports park were built here. In the early 2000’s the area was developed into a park. It consist of five parks : a Cultural Art Park, an Ecological Forest, a Nature Experience Study Field, Wetlands Ecological Field, and Han River Waterside Park. There are many people enjoying their weekend with friends and children all over the forest park.
Last Saturday, the weather was very fine, we Seoul sketchers met at the park and enjoyed sketching  in a very friendly atmosphere. I was excited by the colorful sceneries and sketched rapidly here and there in the pleasant park.

서울숲...뚝섬 경마장과 골프장이던 곳이 한강변의 생태공원으로 되살아나서
시민들의 여가활동과 문화 예술을 즐기는 복합공간으로 자리잡아 가고 있습니다.
시원한 강바람과 울창한 초록빛 자연 속에 스케치의 새로운 마당이 펼쳐집니다.

감사합니다.
놀이터 어린이들은 작으면서 동작이 자연스럽고 유연해서~~ 한없이 그려도 지루하지 않아서 좋은 것 같아요.

내공이 느껴지는 그림들입니다. 모든 그림에 선생님만의 개성이 느껴져서 너무 좋아요.

감사합니다.
현장 스케치는 넘쳐나는 소재와 시간제약이라는 변수가 있어서 매력적이고~~
그래서 한장 한장 그릴 때마다 더욱 집중하게 되는 것 같아요.
