Last Saturday, it was a nice day with the blue sky in autumn. We Seoul urban sketchers met at an attractive park in downtown to sketch together. Located in Gwangjin-gu, Seoul Children's Grand Park (서울 어린이대공원) is a large park with a zoo, botanical garden, amusement park, and diverse performance events for the families with children. The park is full of attractions appealing to all ages, and many events take place at the park throughout the year. It was a weekend, so the park was full of families with kids, young people enjoying the weekend, and lots of citizens including some foreign tourists all day long. For a long time I've sketched numerous colorful scenes changing over the years in this park. Every time I visit the park, I used to look for something new subject not sketched before. I had a pleasant sketch time in a dreamlike children's park with a thankful heart. Love the fantastic amusement park and the liveliness of Seoul!
능동 어린이대공원은 '스케치 테마공원" 같습니다.
수십 년에 걸친 공원시설과 환경이 조금씩 변해가면서
그때그때마다 시절 따라 생생한 모습을 그리는 것은...
마치 우리 생활상을 담은 기록같이 소중한 작업입니다.
숲과 주변빌딩, 동식물원과 힐링 산책로, 어린이 놀이동산,
가족쉼터와 각종 이벤트 공간들은 스케치 소재가 넘쳐납니다.
도시의 분주한 일상을 잠시 떠나 가족들의 꿈과 희망을 안고
태양을 마시며 생기발랄하고 활기차게 뛰노는 동심의 세계는
어반 스케쳐의 빼놓을수 없는 "상설 스튜디오"라 하겠습니다.
