Techno Mart located at Guui-dong, Gwangjin-gu is a big shopping mall. It has a very attractive space, Hangang)river) observatory. Five sketchers including two new comers, Lee Jeong Sook and Kim Yeon Jae gathered there. It was very hot and humid with rain drops from time to time. In the morning we stayed outside though our backs were wet by sweats. After having lunch and cold drinks we went down to shopping mall. We found a pretty yellow car on 1st floor. How creative the owner who has used it as a showcase of sunglasses was! People seemed to be caught by the car and tried to put the goods. 
At four pm we enjoyed our works spreading them on steps at 9th floor. Some wanted to see night scenery of river. Wow it was very fantastic. 
Thank you so much for the new comers! We hope you to keep sketching together.

무척 더웠습니다. 9층 옥상 전망대에서 먼저 오신 이정숙선생님을 반가이 만났습니다. 잠시 소개를 나눈 후에 그림을 그리시 시작했는데 등에서 땀이 줄줄 흐르더군요. 간신히 아크릴 그림을 마치고 점심을 들고 실내에서 그렸구요. 한낮에 밖에서 한강 풍경을 멋지게 그리신 윤영숙선생님의 열정에 박수를 보냅니다. 오루 4시에 그림 감상을 하고 이야기를 나누다가 늦게 합류하신 김연제선생님을 맞아 저녁까지 먹고 옥상 정원에서 한강 야경을 감상하였습니다. 더워서 그런지 야경이 훨씬 인상적이었습니다. 서울의 이런 저런 아름다운 모습을 그릴 수 있다는 것에 고마움을 느낍니다. 새로 오신 두분께서 앞으로 즐거운 시간 함께 하시기를 바랍니다. 감사합니다!

Lotte World Tower(123-floor) locates at Jamsil, Seoul. The tower is still under construction at top part. People visit there to see the high rise building and mall. At the 1st floor I saw nice looking cars at the coffee shop "Connect To". There were three cars including shining gold color concept car LF-C2. 
I sketched one by one. One female staff showed curiosity and told me about Lexus Brand Experience Space and took photos before I left. While I was drawing these sketches I felt so sorry about the sudden death of Flaf.
Rest in peace, Flaf.

A part of a big building, Ssamzigil, Insa-dong

19 x 25 cm

I often go to Insa Art Center to see exhibited works there. I go up to 6th floor by elevator and walk down to the ground by walk. And I stop at a wonderful terrace on 5th floor with nice views around the building. Across the Insadong street we can look a big building from the ground to the rooftop with lawn and trees. We can see people come and go shopping and taking rest here and there and walking the rounding ramps. Through the year we see different features by changing colors of trees. The building is always crowded by tourists from the world. I just cut that complicated scene vertically to simplify my drawing. 

지난 주에 인사아트센터를 방문하고 늘 들르는 5층 테라스에서 쌈지길 빌딩을 일부 그렸습니다. 날씨는 워낙 후덥지근했지만 그 테라스가 비오면 도구펴기가 어려운지라 참고 그렸어요. 항상 생동감이 넘치는 곳이라 변화무쌍한 모습이 그려볼만했습니다. 전시작품들도 보고 그림도 한점하고 일석이조였습니다.

제 5회 서울 도심 스케치전 안내 (Notice for an exhibition at Myeong-dong)

날씨가 많이 무덥습니다.
지난 주 명동의 유네스코 회관 옥상 정원에 위치한 배롱나무 카페를 방문하고 전시회를 보았습니다.  둘로 나뉘어진 카페 벽면을 활용하여 소품 전시회를 하기에 좋은 장소였습니다. 그곳에서 8월 1일 부터 31일까지 서울 어반 스케쳐스의 '서울 도심 스케치전'을 열려합니다.  옥상 정원도 아름답고 카페도 조용한 분위기라 그림과 어우러지면서 더욱 멋진 공간이었어요.  더구나 작품 판매의 일정 부분을 아프리카 후원금으로 기부함으로 보람도 있겠습니다.

관심있으신 분들의 많은 참여 바라며 으로 연락 주시기 바랍니다. 감사합니다.


장소 : 명동 유네스코 회관 배롱나무 카페
날짜 : 2016년 8월 1일 - 2016년 8월 31일, 
        평일 오전 9시 - 오후 8시, 토요일 오전 9시 - 오후 7시, 일요일 휴무

We are glad to announce that we will hold 5th exhibition at the Baerongnamu Cafe, UNESCO House located at Myeong-dong from Aug. 1st to 31st this year. The space is very special because it's in the rooftop garden at the center of Seoul. We can feel natural as if we're standing in the countryside garden with wooden benches here and there and somewhat big trees such as Crape Myrtle and so on. We hope many sketchers to join this exhibit and share great pleasure of donating some portion to support the UNESCO business by selling lots of works. Please send mails to if you have interest in this event. Thank you!

construction field at Gyonam-dong, Jongno-gu

39 x 27 cm

The area locates near the Independence Gate and is undergoing redevelopment. Construction field is always full of lively scenery. There exists only necessary things. Unnecessary tools or cars are removed soon for much more needed things. Moving vehicles and laborers, superintendents add intensive tension. I love to draw such scenes though the air is not good from the beginning to the last minute of finishing. We could see the features of the field till the end of completion of buildings. And such intermediate sights can never be seen after finishing. So I'd like to capture the bare face of the area before decoration after construction. 

얼마전 교남동 재개발 현장 가까운 곳에 볼일이 있어 갔다가 공사 현장을 보게 되었어요. 언제나 공사현장은 많은 인력과 중장비자등 긴장감이 넘치는 곳입니다. 더구나 현장이라는 것이 완공이 되고 나면 사라지는 모습들이라서 꼭 그려보고 싶은 현장이구요. 아직 완공에는 시일이 걸릴듯합니다. 기회가 되면 다시 가보고 싶습니다.
