It was a little windy, but a very fine day to sketch. We Seoul urban sketchers met at Marronnier Park located on the former site of Seoul National University, Daehangno, Seoul. I sketched around this attractive park several times before and was always fascinated with the exciting sensation of the lively city. The park was crowded with young people and children including foreign tourists. The landmark buildings, Arko Arts Theater and Gallery located in the park, where lots of performances are held all the year round. In the open-air performance hall or street stage the various musicians play music freely with the crowd. Especially, the red brick wall of the beautiful buildings in the sunlight is harmonized with the green leaves of the horse chestnut in Marronnier Park.
I had a good sketch time drawing and painting here and there in historic Marronnier Park, bringing back my childhood memories.
낙산과 대학천을 따라 흘러 온 지성과 낭만의 근대사~
붉은 벽돌과 마로니에 나뭇잎 사이로 빛과 색의 율동이 어우러지고
문화유산과 젊음이 공존하는 살아있는 역사의 마로니에 광장은
클래식과 현대를 넘나드는 조형, 연극, 뮤지컬, 길거리 퍼포먼스~~
문화적 상징과 감성적 소재가 넘치는 매력적인 스케치 장소입니다.

역동적인 젊음의 열기와 선생님의 필력이 찰떡궁합이네요
선생님의 그림속에서 미처 보지못한 대학로의 모습을 봅니다^^
