Jeongdong is one of the best places for urban sketching in downtown Seoul. There are a lot of attractive subject matters for sketching such as beautiful Deoksugung Palace(덕수궁), stonewall walkway(돌담길), various church buildings, museums, modern architectural properties and the traditional festivals for many tourists and visitors. I liked such subjects and enjoyed sketching around Jeongdong for a long time. Every time I sketch, it’s a new experience.
Last Saturday, usk Seoul members including many new comers met together around Deoksugung Palace and had a good sketch time. I painted a buildingscape in watercolors on the Jeongdong-gil street in the morning. After lunch, I went up to the Jeongdong Observatory (정동 전망대) on the 13th floor of Seoul City Hall Seosomun Annex Building (서소문 청사). The beautiful panoramic views of numerous buildings through the window fascinated me. I painted another buildingscape in watercolors looking down from the Observatory inside the building. It was a very pleasant sketch time to paint watercolors.
고풍스러운 전통 분위기와 현대도시의 북적거림이 어우러지며
관광객들과 각종 행사 인파로 넘쳐나는 도심의 명소~~
덕수궁과 정동 주변의 풍물은 한없이 그려도 마르지 않는
서울도심 스케치의 오아시스같은 장소입니다.....
