.It rained off and on yesterday. We Seoul urban sketchers met on Sagan-dong(사간동) near Gyeongbokgung Palace and sketched around Bukchon Hanok Village(북촌 한옥마을), where lots of traditional houses and new buildings coexist side byside harmoniously and has become a major tourist attraction. Despite the badweather, the rainy sceneries of the beautiful village seemed like an atmosphere of "Watercolors in Rain". I couldn't but sketch inside building or take shelter from the rain under the eaves while painting watercolors. It was a very exciting sketch time practicing finish the sketches within a short period of time on rainy days.
경복궁과 주변의 북촌마을은 잘 정돈된 전통한옥과 고궁, 문화시설들과 카페거리... 종로 스케치에서 빼놓을 수 없는 다양하고 무궁무진한 소재를 지닌 명소입니다.
온종일 장마비로 인한 애로가 많았지만, "비오는 날의 수채화"를 그리면서 색다른 분위기를 느끼고 또한 악천우에 대처하며 그리는 실전 경험도 큰 소득이라 생각합니다.
