The weather was really fantastic. The temple was decorated with colorful lotus lamps all around it. We enjoyed the beautiful scene hearing the Buddhist service while sketching. We had lunch served at the temple dining room. Two Chinese sketchers who were staying for study in Korea liked Korean temple food too. In the afternoon a family came for visiting the temple showed interest in art so much. I talked them about our activity and asked them to join next month. Different from the downtown temple like Jogyesa the temple was very quiet so we could spend a nice day drawing those great scenes.

Participants : Lee Yong Hwan, Han Jeong Seon, Baik Kyung Won, Choi Jeong Eun, Jung Cho Hye, Byun Seok Hyeon, Shi Zhi Fang, Ying Meng, Lee Mi Young, Yoo Byung Hwa

Thank you all!
Thank you all the participants!

BEAUTIFUL sketches!! And photos of the locations & all of you. What a great description of your day! In Alaska, we are 17 hours behind you, so we start sketching in about 4 hours. This is my first involvement in the USK community & my first time organizing a meet up. 4 people say they plan to meet me. Your post is a great inspiration!

First time for joining SketchCrawl.
It was great day for sketching scenery. The sky was clear, condition of the air was terrific. I had been in Seoul most of my lifetime so I thought I've known Seoul well but every time I participate in USK Seoul, I'm always impressed by the site.
When I encountered Okcheonam, those colorful lights and friendly houses and alley was really nice.
If I had chance to know Okcheonam before I showed around my foreign friend who visited Korea 1 month ago, I could've taken him to there. Maybe next time. :-)

It was a little windy but pleasantly sunny and warm last Saturday. For the 59th World Wide SketchCrawl, USK Seoul members met at Okcheonam Hermitage, a small and peacefull temple in Hongeun-dong, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul. Okcheonam Temple located at the foot of Samgaksan Mountain, and beneath the precinct Hongjecheon stream that flows throughout the year. The Temple dates back to the 14th century during the Goryeo dynasty. Lots of colorful Lotus Lanterns are beautifully embroidered on the temple and the street around the surrounding residential village. It was to celebrate the Buddha's Birthday on May 22. The temple buildings are built on narrow and steep bedrock linearly, and the natural combination of different architectures seems very interesting and beautiful features harmonized with the natural landscape. Especially the Rock-carved Seated Bodhisattva of Okcheonam Hermitage (Designation: Treasure No.1820) is famous for a large Buddhist image over five meters tall. The granite carving is concave and painted in a lovely seashell white, and so called "The White Buddah". Though the site of the temple is long narrow and rather small but the the precincts was crowded with Buddhists and visitors for lanterns ceremony to celebrate Buddha's Birthday.
On entering the temple, I was fascinated with the panoramic scenes of the temple and the neighboring village, including access bridge over the stream and curved overpass, apartment buildings, etc. I enjoyed sketching several colorful scenes around the small and peaceful temple at the foot of the mountain nearby downtown Seoul.

We had the meeting of Sketch Crawl in Okcheonam.
It is a smart temple on the roadside .
I thought the temple would be crowded, because the Buddha's day is approaching, but the temple was quiet and comfortable as if l were in the mountain. The colorful lotus lamps were in harmony with the spring flowers and trees. The weather was best for drawing .
It's been a long time ,i had a hard time to sketch , but my mind was easy..

Hi BH Yoo!
Thank you. I am much in better condition now. I really think art helps healing.

Glad you and KPinAK (from Anchorage) are connected. She is an enthusiastic sketch artist, new to WWSC posting.
I remember how you helped me with my technology questions from my first day! Thanks!
