Sketches at the children's Grand Park

                 The weekend's Neung-dong Children's Grand Park
                 was very crowded and noisy as usual .
                 But sketching is always fun anytime anywhere.
                 Last year, we had the meeting of sketches here ,
                 I had a hard time of drawing animals because of
                 sunshine and crowds.
                 So, l searched for the shelter of tree to draw the
                 landscapes instead of animals.
                 But I realized again that there is no easy thing in
                 the world .
                 I substitute animals drawings for last year's.

                주말의 어린이 대공원은 언제나처럼 무척 붐비고 시끄러웠다
                그러나 그림을 그리는 것 은 언제 어디서나 즐거운 일...
                원래 대공원 의 진수는 동물 스케치이나 작년에 햇빛과 인파로
                동물을 그리기 너무 힘들었던 기억에 이번에는 풍경을 그리고자
                일찌감치 나무그늘을 찿았다.
                하지만 얇미운 햇살은 점점 그늘을 뺏어가고...
                .....동물그림은 미흡하나마 작년그림으로 대신하고자 한다..

Sketches at the Children's Grand Park, Neung-dong, Seoul

Beautiful scenery with Baerong tree(Lagerstroemia indica) in full blossom in front of main gate of the park, pen, watercolor, 28 x 37 cm
While waiting for members to come, this tree caught my eye. When I was young same kind was there at my home. Seeing the flower, drawing it all the memories with my parents who'd passed flashed back. 

There locates a modern architectural building designed by Architect Na Seong-Jin. The original use for golf course was changed into multi public purposes for citizen. But the structure looks very attractive always. pen, watercolor, 28 x 37 cm

After sketching the above I captured a scene of family picnic seated next to mine with brush pen and watercolor. A 4

Near the food court in front of botanic garden people take some rest after lunch. Trees, sunlight, shadow and kids with their family made a picture itself. pen, watercolor, 28 x 37 cm

Kids may like the elephant the most. The cage is always crowded with visitors. I saw the big structure with miniature of elephant on top. Big awning for the elephant looked good too. Without shining light how could I make this drawing? I felt warm with people.
pen, watercolor, 28 x 37 cm

Before ending this sketching I couldn't help dropping in the amusement park. It was full of exciting scream and sound. Parents were resting under big awning. Kids were always happy in such area. I thought of my days of long, long time ago. brush pen, watercolor, 37 x 28 cm

It was really fine day. I think every body would enjoy the nice weather and sketching together. Hope all to keep sketching with interest and courage. Thank you all!

어제 너무나 좋은 날씨에 즐거운 스케치할 수 있어서 감사했습니다. 좋은 가을 만끽하시기 바랍니다.

어린이 대공원 (Children's Grand Park)

오늘 처음 참여 했습니다. 너무 즐거웠어요.
저는 한국적인 건물들이 마음에 들어서 두번이나 그렸네요.
다음번에는 조금 더 큰 종이와 여러가지 색의 수채화 팔레트로 새롭게 시도하고 싶어요!

It was my first experience of urban sketching. I truly enjoyed it ♡
I really like to draw traditional korean buildings but It's a little bit complicated to understand how to draw. I need more practice about this kind of structure.
Next time I would try to use more a bigger sketchbook and a full range of watercolor palette. It will be fun!

Sketches at Jeong Dong, Seoul

                This Tuesday we had an occasional meeting .
                I joined sketching  after lunch because I had
                a weekly class every weekdays .
                It was not crowded on a weekday,and it was
                a perfect day to draw. Above all, there were so
                many things to draw around Deoksu Palace.
                I was a little ashamed not to know exactly the
                history of the buildings...

                이번주 화요일에 캐나디언 u.k의 요청으로 번개 스케치
                모임이 있었다.나는 매주 화요일 듣는 수업으로 점심후
                회원들과 스케치를 시작했다.
                주중이라 한산했고 날씨도 더할나위없이 좋았다.
                무엇보다 덕수궁,광화문주변은 신,구가 조화로운
                그릴 것 들로 가득찬 종합선물세트 같은 곳 이다.
                짧게나마  힐링의  시간을 가졌다. ..

정관헌과 배재학당

 수원어반스케쳐스에서 왕성하게 활동하고 계신 정효선님의 작품입니다.
평일 낮에 어반스케치가 열려서 참여할 수 있는 시간이 되어서 참여하셨습니다.


덕수궁 어반스케치

서울어반스케쳐스에 처음 참가하신 김채은님 작품입니다.

Deoksu Palace and Pai Chai school in Jeongdong

USK Seoul in Deoksu Palace and Baejae Jeondong, Seoul, South Korea with Nancy from BC, Canada.

Jeonggwanheon: The meaning of this name is "the place to watch the garden silently"
So, we need to be quiet in this place, but kids and students were unspeakably chatty as usual.

 Pai Chai School Museum: It was the first modernized school established by Henry Gerhart Appenzeller in 1885. It's been more than 100 years and hope this building remain safely forever.

The Korea Independent Newspaper site in Pai Chai school
I googled it, however, it may not be the exact site of the building.
The Korean Independent News paper established in 1864 (~1951) by JaePil Seo.

Due to the bad right hand wrist, I had to use oil pastel most of the time. Anyway it was quite pleasure to draw together and especially special guest Nancy from BC, CANADA. Hope to see you again someday!  

조은비(Margaret) 입니다. 손목부상으로 제대로 그림을 그리지 못했네요. 
그래도 언제나 그리기는 즐겁습니다. 다음 모임때 뵙겠습니다.^^

덕수궁과 배재학당

정관헌 (21*50cm, pen and coloured pencils) 

덕수궁에서  (21*25cm, brushpen) 
백재학당 역사박물관 (24*32cm, pen and watercolor) 

덕수궁은 우리나라 4대궁중에 가장 특색있는 건물들이 많아
이것저것 많이 그려보고 싶었는데 정관헌 하나만 결국 그렸네요..
수채 채색을 못하게 하는 것이 아쉬웠지만..
집에와서 채색해봐야지 했는데 잘 안되네요..
시립미술관 뒤편에 배재학당이 있는 줄 몰랐는데...
이렇게 또 좋은 곳을 알아가네요..
정동은 이곳저곳 그릴만한 건물이 많은 것 같습니다.
다음에라도 방문해서 그려봐야겠습니다.

Nancy Ho, a foreign sketcher from Canada, pencil, (21 x 29.6cm)
Yesterday, the weather was so fine to sketch under the autumn sky.  We Seoul urban sketchers including a foreign new comer, Nancy Ho, met together around Deoksugung 
Palace and had a good sketch time all day. Deoksugung Palace is one of the most famous attractions for Korean traditional palace with history in downtown Seoul. The palace sits alongside a series of modern style buildings that add to the uniqueness of the surrounding scenery. We sketched the colorful traditional buildings inside the palace through the morning, and after lunch we moved to Jeong-dong adjacent to the palace. There are a lot of attractive subject matters for sketching such as beautiful stonewall walkway, various church buildings, museums, modern architectural properties and the traditional festivals for many tourists and visitors. I liked such subjects and enjoyed sketching around Jeong-dong for a long time. I sketched lovely scenes in historic downtown Seoul with a peace of mind as ever.
가을하늘~~ 덕수궁과 정동을 중심으로 펼치는 파노라마는
시청과 광화문, 종로와 남대문, 명동과 서울역을 어우르며
모든 요소가 무궁무진 깔려있는... 그리면 그릴수록 새로워지는,
그토록 수없이 그려도 그려도 지루하지 않은... 열린 스튜디오~
어반스케치 명소중의 명소라고 느껴집니다.
