During this vacation, I am determined to not neglect my drawings. To that end I brought to Korea with me a sketchbook along with a few basic drawing tools such as pencils and illustration markers. During my flight, I also purchased a basic set of watercolor pencils from the flight’s duty free catalog.
Although I have been busier than expected, meaning less time to draw, I am determined to leave Korea with a good amount of memories and sights recorded in my sketchbook.
One of the drawings is a sunrise looking out the balcony of our room at the Pinestone Country Club in Dangjin, Korea. One branch of my husband’s family organized a big family reunion here and this is what I woke up to. It’s interesting to see the peaceful gardens, green houses and rice fields separated from the hustle and bustle of the city’s the sky scrapers and tall apartment buildings by only a small thick of trees.
I am usually very strategic and take my time with drawings. So for the drawings in this series, I have challenged myself to capture the sights of my trip quickly and decisively. This results in expressive lines and shapes for a looser and more relaxed product. I record only the major pieces that are relevant and meaningful to me.
Check back soon for the next drawing!
