Seoul, Korea [Results]

I started first drawing at Lotte Cinema hall at 6th floor of Lotte department.

Cold weather of -15 degrees made us hard to expect many sketchers to join. But two brave new comers, Han Ju-hyeon and Kim Kyu-hun, came for sketching together. Much thanks to Lee Yong-hwan and Yun Young-sook from Yongin city too.
But the inside of department was warm for us to put off thick coats while sketching on bright bridge looking down both sides of urban features. We shared new comers' nice sketches which were made before. Those were inspiring. After having lunch we moved into Coffee Bean located across Myeongdong Cathedral. The place was nice for sketchers with good scenery through pane glass moving the ground floor to 2nd floor freely. After finishing we gathered at the plaza of '1898 Myeongdong Cathedral', basement of the cathedral, which was rebuilt under the previous parking lot. Sharing works done all day was always worthy for all of us. We shared experiences and tips.
Thank you so much for participating with courage and love for sketching together!

Thank you, Travelingsuep and Joan T!
We thought like that 'snowgeddon' might have prevented you from gathering and sketching together.
Cold weather could not be compared with that of yours though.
And we were lucky to find indoor space with nice views. :)

Lovely work. We had a similar day (maximum 8ºC) but also had a very good turnout.

Thanks for checking in with us, BH Yoo!
You had some REAL weather to contend with at your locations! Very, very cold in Korea this time. You are to be commended for drawing despite the weather, and found a very interesting location.:clap:
The contrast of 100+ year-old cathedral with modern Love Bridge is fascinating. We enjoy your art!
Mark PS: We are still waiting for more images here--only 4 of 20 people have posted so far. :oops:

( 21 x 29.6 cm sketchbook )

Last Saturday, It was very cold weather to sketch outdoors. For the 50th World Wide SketchCrawl, Seoul sketchers met at Myeong-dong, which is one of the busiest places in Seoul. Myeong-dong is a Mecca of commerce and finance, shopping and culture, arts and fashion of Korea and a very popular tourist destination of Jung-gu in downtown Seoul.
In the morning, I sketched some streetscapes and mannequins in and outside of Lotte Department building. After lunch, I moved to Myeong-dong Cathedral, and sketched colorful sceneries around the quiet cathedral and the bustling streets.

More sketches and texts of Yun Young-sook :

MyungDong is located in the middle of Seoul.
The letter ' Myung= 明' means the sun and the moon, after the sun sets the moon rises so it means always bright place.
Inspite of the cold weather the street is full of people.
At 2 p.m. the street is filled with wagons, which is of stuff to eat.
It feels like it cheer up the street.
I drew 2 old fashioned buildings.
