Despite of heavy rain, nine sketchers including four new comers participated in!
Jogyesa locates at Jongno - one of busiest places in Seoul. It's a headquarter of Jogye Order in Korea Buddhist, so many believers and foreign tourists visit. After sketching there we moved to the Jongno street for capturing the Bosingag where the bells of New Year tolled.
Thank you all the participants, especially New Comers!
Hope you to keep sketching together forwards!

Great to see your enthusiastic group, with 4 (!) newcomers in spite of the rain and people of various ages coming together to do this. It's a delight to see so many sketches resulting from your crawl, and they're wonderful to look at.

We've met at Jogyesa this time. Jogyesa is quite famous big temple located in near Kwanghwamoon. It's very crowded today because of weekend. Mostly people who want to pray and tourist. It's very nice place to draw even when it rains. There are many benches to sit and eaves to avoid from rain. The decoration of the ceiling in the yard was very touching today. Those colorful fabric are fantastic. It was very happy day with our members including new members.

<A watercolor of a rainy day>

The long rain began. Rain was brought down awfully from the morning.
I am worried about whether there is a number to picture sketching so that there had been a lot of rain.
Rain decreased as soon as time passed. If it rains, a number to picture the feeling is good as there is it.
I make it so that a feeling for lyrical feeling to carry is good.

It was rainy and inclement weather, I joined in 40th World Wide SketchCrawl with Seoul sketchers around Jogyesa Temple located in downtown Seoul. Jogyesa Temple is an oasis of spiritual peace in the heart of the bustling metropolis. There are some historic cultural properties including traditional Korean architectures. Along the street around Jogyesa are many Buddhist specialty shops and some colorful facilities related to Buddhism. The traditional space in urban center is very interesting for our urban skechers. I sketched various sceneries here and there, looking around the peaceful temple.

Thank you Debora, Sophie Valenti, Dave C, and Eyes and all the visitors!
Seoul, Korea team has been participated since 21st. Many sketchers had joined. Most of them would have enjoyed the sketching marathon in fine or bad weather.
I remember the first and the coldest day of 21th in January among all those sketchcrawl days.
I just hope that many sketchers or sketchers-to-be participate in next crawls.
Thank you all!!! :clap: :)

Hi BH and Seoul group!
Nice lines and atmospheric color! :thumbup:
(And of course I am partial to the great turtle monuments!)
We finally returned home from UK where I focused on drawing/painting for 3 weeks (no computer work!). So now, a late sketchcrawl posting under Tallahassee [RESULTS].
On July 13th, Sara and I met the talented London group of sketchcrawlers this year; you can see on London [RESULTS] page.
