Seoul, Korea [Results]

It was very fine neither hot as of last summer nor cold or windy. 10 sketchers gathered including five new comers. We started at the Baerongnamu Cafe located at the 12th rooftop garden of Korean National Commission for UNESCO(유네스코한국위원회). Myeong-dong is one of the most frequented downtown in Seoul where lots of tourists visit to see and experience lively mood of Seoul. There the building stands in the busiest street. But the rooftop garden has somewhat different atmosphere by seemingly natural feature though it was artificially cultivated. Nobody would imagine how the machine room was changed into such a nice space.
After having lunch we kept sketching here and there. On the way to the cathedral I found a big bazaar was held at the ground of cathedral. People were busy to see and buy goods. I sketched two seated on chair comfortably. Because the church is beautiful and historical it's loved by newly wedding couple for taking photos. While drawing the church a couple was posing by the order of photographer. I captured them too.
At 3:30 we met at the backyard to see our works. Sharing and appreciating was there.

Participants : Lee Yong-hwan, Yun Young-sook, Lee Joung-sook, Kim Yeon-jae, Yoo Byung-hwa, new comers - William, Yun Hyang-ran, Park Ha-young, Park Hyoun-sook, Yi Ji-hyun.

Thank you all!

Thanks for sharing! Very nice works. I love the photo with the guitar player and the drawing at the same time.

Thank you BH Yoo and Tatie!
You are right about how music can inspire a "dancing hand" and lively drawing!

I have only one new image posted this morning...my version of Randy's Antique Ford car.
I know other people were sketching on other porches, so I still hope to post more tomorrow when they send them to me.

By William from England.

Myeong-dong cathedral with Namsan Tower in the background. This was my first experience drawing with fellow urban sketchers and I highly enjoyed it.

Image

A view of the Chinese school in Myeong-dong. We started the day at a beautiful rooftop cafe that had many great views over the nearby shopping distract.

Image

Everyone collected their work together at the end of a great day. We were really lucky with the weather and there was plenty of inspiration around. I would highly recommend coming along for the next SketchCrawl Seoul.

Last Saturday, for the 53rd World Wide SketchCrawl, we Seoul sketchers gathered around Myeong-dong which is one of the most famous tourist attractions. We met and sketched at the Baerongnamu Cafe on the 12th floor, rooftop garden of UNESCO House building. After lunch, we moved and sketched freely here and there near Myeong-dong Cathedral.
I sketched some colorful sceneries around the cafe and the fascinating Myeong-dong street. It was such a nice autumn day!

You did nice works and I guess you had a good time.
I like the differences in styles and ways of look

Seoul Urban Sketchers, iPhone

These are my first urban sketches! I was 30 minutes late and felt little bit nervous when I saw other people already started to draw. But few minutes later, I realized I never concern whether other peoples are looking at me or not. I really enjoyed freedom among many pedestrians in Myungdong streets in the afternoon.

지난주 토요일 처음으로 어반 스케치 모임에 합류한 이지현입니다. 이렇게 자유로운 분위기 속에서 그림을 그려본 게 초등학교 사생대회 이후로 처음인 것 같습니다. 사람이 가득한 명동 한복판에서 다른 사람들의 시선은 신경 쓰지 않고 그림을 그리다 보니 갑자기 일상에서 튕겨져 나온 듯 자유롭다라는 생각이 들었습니다. 늦었지만 어디에서든 미술을 제대로 배우고 싶어 여기저기 찾아 다녔는데, 이제 보니 나의 열정과 많은 연습이 더 중요하다는 생각이 들었습니다. 1월에 또 뵙겠습니다.

Thanks for looking at our posts again BH Yoo:

I posted 5 new images just a minute ago: Color from Debi Kistler (I especially like her church and the shadows on her porch drawings)
plus a Black and White street scene by Dottie.

Your new posts are cool 8)

William, your cathedral tower with Namsam tower in the background is a real responsive drawing and contrasts old and new architecture.
The red accents are very nice in your second drawing.
What city are you from? Does your hometown have a Sketchcrawl group? I participated in WWSC in London (July 2013)

Yi Ji-hyun, I especially like the drawing of your friend, Kieun.

Kim Yeon-jae, your figure drawing also has a good feel.

Thanks, all of Seoul group!

Thank you very much again for your kind comments, Mark! :lol: :thumbup: :clap:

Sketch by Park Hyoun-sook

Image

St Maria in Myeongdong Cathedral

오후에 부족한 솜씨로 그린그림이지만
평화를 상징하는 명동성당 기도하는 장소는
내마음에 들었다
그림을 그리며 평화를 주소서 조용히
함께 기도하며 그림을 그렸다.

Image

친구 정숙이의 초대로 명동성당 어반스케치에 처음 입문~~ㅎ
위그림 상단에 예쁜여자 그림이 나의 모습이다
친구가 그린 그림속에 나는 평화롭게 느껴졌다.
하긴 복잡한 명동 거리에 이렇게 조용한 곳이 있다니
행복하고 즐거운 토요일 오후를 보냈다.
