The weather was fine though blowing a little. Eight sketchers including two new comers, Han Kyung Eun and Jeong Seul A, gathered on time at the fountain plaza in front of the Bank of Korea and Sinsegae department. After sketching in the morning we had lunch at 12 :30 pm in nearby reasaurant at Namdaemun market. We continued sketching around Namdaemun market and Namdaemun Gate till 4:00 pm. Finishing the sketch Crawl we took photos and shared all the sketches we've done all day. And, we had good time having tea in coffee shop talking about sketching. Thank you all for the love and passion in sketching together!

Mr. Park Jea Wook presented the precious pen(left one) to me, which was made by himself. I tried some. The small watercolor work with pigeons in foreground was drawn by this pen. I'll keep and use it very gratefully.

Namdaemun(Sungnyemun), National Treasure No.1, was built in 1398. It served as the gate through the fortress walls surrounding the downtown Seoul. Moreover it is one of the most recognized landmarks in Korea. Nearby is Namdaemun Market, Korea's largest and most prominent conventional open market. Also within walking distance are lots of modern cultural heritages and tourist attractions. On the 41th World Wide Sketchcrawl, It was fine weather for sketching, I sketched around Namdaemun with Seoul urban sketchers pleasantly.

It was my first time joining Urban Sketchers. The weather was perfect and the people were so welcoming that I spent the day with pure happiness. It is so lucky that there's chance for sharing such great experiences as well as excellent drawings. I'll definately be a part of urban sketchers for as long as I can.
