Last Saturday was the day of usk Seoul's April meet up in pararelled with the 63rd World Wide SketchCrawl at Gangbyeon Techno Mart(강변 테크노마트). Coincidentally, that day I was scheduled to participate in Korea watercolor academy (한국수채화 아카데미) event, so I couldn't join in the usk Seoul' April meeting. Although I couldn't attend this important sketch meeting on the day, I went to the Techno Mart a few days earlier and made a sketch in advance.
Gangbyeon Techno Mart located at Guui-dong, Gwangjin-gu is known to be the biggest electronics depot in Korea. It is a large shopping mall that connects to other shopping and discount stores. In addition to all kinds of electronic products, Techno Mart is also well-known as a hot place of relaxation and enjoyment, such as Lifestyle & fashion shopping mall and wedding hall, various restaurants and Hangang Observatory at Haneul Park (하늘공원) on the 9th floor, CGV movie theater on the 10th floor, and so on. What's meaningful is, 3 years ago we had a good sketch time here as the 52th World Wide SketchCrawl. Impressed by the charming and beautiful scenery along the Han River and the crowded indoor atmosphere, I enjoyed sketching with new feelings and views going up and down in and out of the building.
4월 20일 한국수채화협회 아카데미 시연행사가 겹쳐
저는 부득이 며칠 전에 미리 가서 스케치했습니다.
동참 못하고 따로 그렸지만 스케치의 느낌을 함께 합니다.

3년전 테크노마트의 52차 스케치크롤이 생생하게 떠오릅니다..
전자쇼핑몰과 다양한 즐길거리로 붐비는 실내 분위기...
매력적이고 아름다운 한강변 풍경을 펼치는 랜드마크...
접근성과 짧은 동선, 사통오달의 좋은 스케치 장소입니다~

현장감이 고스란히 느껴지네요
언제나 에너지가 넘치시는 스케치~~

강변 테크노마트는 탁 트인 외부와 막힌 내부공간이 자유롭게 교류하는 듯해서 좋아요~~ 다만 스케치 작업에 배타적인 일부매장의 환경이 아쉬웠지만 그것을 극복하는 것도 수련이라고 생각합니다.

어쩐일로 결근하셨나했더니 딴곳에서 어반을 하셨군요ㅎ
미리하신 그림도 여전히 멋집니다^^

네~ 같은 날, 같은 시간에 인사동 수채화 아카데미 축제의 열기도 뜨거웠습니다.
어반스케치에 큰 자부심을 갖는 계기도 되었어요^^
