A few days ago, in a hot summer weather, I visited a beautiful exotic village and had a lovely sketch time in the outskirts. Petite France (쁘띠 프랑스) in Gapyeong County (Gyeonggi-do, Korea) is a famous French culture Village  and it is only an hour drive from Seoul.
Petite France consists of 16 French style buildings where the visitors can experience 
French food, clothing, and household culture. Entering the gate of the village, I came across a few European style architecture, colorful buildings on the low hill. Inside, there are paintings, dolls, live band performance, souvenirs shop, convenience store and what most valuable is the view of Han river with colorful panoramic landscape of countryside. 
I sketched some exotic buildings and antique exhibits feeling like a child for a while. It was a fantastic sketch time.
쁘띠 프랑스 (프랑스 문화전시관)~~ 
청평댐을 지나 북한강과 호명산의 수려한 주위 배경과 함께 
마치 알프스 산록의 전원마을 같은 유럽 느낌의 아름다운 경관
생텍쥐베리..인형극장...앤티크 유럽골동품...곁들이는 공연과 마술~~
프랑스 문화와 함께 즐기는 생활주변 가까이에 살아있는 스케치 현장입니다.

북한강과 호명산이라니 산과 물의 풍경이 무척 아름다울 것 같아요.
