Last weekend, I joined with World Wide SketchCrawl party on Namsangol Hanok Village (남산골 한옥마을) at the northern foot of Namsan Mountain in downtown Seoul. This peaceful village is a wonderful spot to encounter traditional Korean culture for Koreans and foreign visitors. The Hanok Village contains many architectural styles of traditional buildings representing different regions and lifestyles across the nation, including thatch-roofed farmer's houses, a mansion for the noble class, a provincial government office and so on. Lots of cultural programs and traditional events including Korean martial art Taekwondo performance were held in and outdoors with crowded citizens and tourists.
I sketched several works here and there in the beautiful village enjoying the autumn festival for two days on October 24 and 25.
남산골 한옥마을은 옛 정취와 삶을 훈훈하게 체험할 수 있는 도심의 쉼터입니다.
전통 주거와 풍물을 한 곳에 모아 조상들의 모습을 오늘의 일상에 비쳐 봅니다.
5년전 한옥마을 스케치했던 기억을 살려 그때 못 그린 새로운 정경들을 그리다 보니
스케치크롤 다음날인 일요일까지 이어서 한옥마을 스케치를 하였습니다.
