More sketches at Buam-dong

pencil, watercolor, 30.5 x 40.5 cm

conte, pastels, 30.5 x 40.5 cm

pen, watercolor, 39 x 27 cm




These are the drawings I'd done days before the sketchcrawl day, April 22nd. I surveyed there several times for the meetup. And I drew some every time. There were so many places which caught my eyes. Most of the sketchers who visited there agreed and wanted to sketch them again. I felt sorry that we couldn't visit the Baeksasil village which keeps the original scenery of countryside. We may have chance to capture all those beautiful scenes next time. 

부암동은 가까이 살면서도 늘 스쳐지나갔던 아름다운 마을입니다. 이번 기회에 스케치를 할 수 있어 숙제를 한듯한 느낌입니다. 아직 해야할 숙제가 많기는 하지만요. 욕심내지 말고 천천히 한장씩 그려보려고 합니다. 늘 함께 해주시는 스케쳐 여러분들께 감사드립니다.

Last Saturday, it was fine to sketch outdoors. For the 55th World Wide SketchCrawl, we Seoul urban sketchers met at Buam-dong, Jongno-gu in Seoul. Buam-dong is a charming village in central Seoul that was once occupied mostly by artists and writers. 
Today, modern galleries, coffee shops, and restaurants stand side by side with old mills and barber shops on the narrow alleyways. The historic village harmonizes with Bugaksan Mountain and Inwangsan Mountain, and is famous for various tourist attractions.
On the morning of SketchCrawl day, for some unavoidable reasons, I couldn't help joining with sketchers in the afternoon. The day before, I visited for preliminary survey and drew some sketches in advance. I was absorbed in sketching colorful sceneries of important places here and there around Buam-dong village till late in the afternoon. It was very pleasant sketch time in the beautiful village with Seoul usk members.

인왕산 기슭의 아름다운 동네~~
서울 한복판의 전원마을엔 역사의 향기가 감돌고...
예술과 멋과 맛의 흥취를 담고 자연속에 건강함을 선사하는
부암동의 다양하고 재미난 요소들은 스케치 소재로서 일품입니다.

Buam-Dong Sketch Crawl

It was just fantastic weather, and the best day to draw...
I made my mind to be a enthusiastic member!

서울 중심부 바로 뒤편에 알록 달록 꽃동산이 펼쳐졌습니다.
인왕산과 북악산 사이에 옛스러움을 고스란히 간직한 마을 입니다.
높은 바위와 성곽이 자리잡고 있는 아래에 산 비탈에 맞춰서 지은 집과 언덕의 나무들이 멋지게 어울려 있습니다.
돌계단과 집들이 옹기 종기 마주보고 있는 모습이 정겹습니다.

55th World Wide SketchCrawl





   
How are you everyone ?
I am so lucky to join 55th World Wide SketchCrawl.
Buam-dong is one of my favorite sketching place.
It has old things and new ones at the same time, besides, not far from my house.
Yesterday, so many people visited Buam-dong, because it was weekend and so lovely day.
A little crowded but so energetic.
Several years ago, I was a Seoul urban sketcher member, but I couldn't to attend the meeting
because of personal reasons. It's been a long time to join the meeting.
I'll try again from now on Very thank you for all attending members
and I hope to see you next meeting!

I was amazed to see the old mill in Seoul.

It was a fine day though hot under the sun. Some were old pals and some were new. The Buam-dong is one of the oldest village in Seoul with beautiful mountains such as Inwangsan, Bugaksan and Bughansan. It is not far from the Blue House and Gyeongbokgung(palace). Seoul fortress walls are surrounding. We can walk along the wall looking down the villages. Lots of citizens and tourists visit the wall. Small coffee shops and restaurants are located along the small alleys. Sketchers enjoyed all day drawing sights here and there while some were sharing talks under the parasols having tea. Life is long; we don't need to hurry to capture all at one time. We gather and draw what we observe and share all about we dream living together. 
Much thanks for all : Min Jeong Sook, Choi Jong Suk, Andy Oh, John Lee, Han Jung Sun, Kim Hae Won, Baik Kyung Won, Jung Young Kyeong, Han Mi Young, Choi Sung Ye, Joung Young Hee, Yi Ji Hyun, Kang Eun Young Eunice, Lee Yong Hwan, BH Yoo. 
Hope to see you next month! 

55th World Wide SketchCrawl page 를 방문하시고 지구촌 스케쳐들의 작품을 감상하시기 바랍니다. 

오늘 좋은 날씨에 많은 분들이 참여해주셔서 감사했습니다. 스케치가 많이 알려져서 간단한 도구로 커다란 즐거움을 얻는 기회를 나누는 듯합니다. 오랜만에 만난 분들과 나누는 그림 이야기도 소중하여 많은 그림 그리려는 조급함을 잠시 내려놓았던 하루였습니다. 그림을 매개로 하여 처음으로 만나는 분들과의 인연이 오래도록 이어지기를 바랍니다.

Sketches at Under Stand Avenue, Seoul Forest(Park)

Yesterday I went to Seoul Forest(park) where I used to go for sketching. There are some entrance gates around the park. Among them people can meet new space "Under Stand Avenue" getting out of exit 3, Seoul Forest subway station. Though it's not new but it has much attractive points being located next to the big park. Colorful containers give exotic atmosphere inside which restaurants, shops, creative and recycling studios are found. 
Two years ago the abandoned around the park was transformed into a new, comprehensive and public cultural space for social minority groups with 116 containers by the support of Lotte Duty Free shop and ARCON(Arts and Community Network) under the agreement with Seongdong district office. 
Visitors and villagers around the park seemed to enjoy both walking in a big park and having dishes in open terraces in that avenue. So the place is loved by all generations. The area has spacial limit. As a result the general scene will be changed through adding more containers and remodeling the original structure. I expect to see more various shapes in the future.

어제 모처럼 서울숲으로 스케치를 나갔습니다. 전에 공원 산책하러 갈 때마다 한번 그려보아야지 하던 장소였어요.  날씨도 따뜻하고 해서 콘테이너 그늘에 앉아 편히 그려보았습니다. 오랜만에 붓을 잡으니 서먹하더군요. 서울의 이곳 저곳에 컨테이너를 이용한 이색 장소가 여러 군데에 생겨나서 스케쳐로서 반가운 마음입니다. 다음에 서울 어반 스케쳐 여러분들과 함께 그릴 기회가 있었으면 합니다.
