Seochon, an elegant village stretching from the west wing of Gyeongbok Palace to the base of Mt. Inwang, is a place with a background of the 600-year historic city of Seoul. Besides Seochon is well known as a famous historic village where traditional houses and modern architecture coexist. This village is full of subject for sketching, such as, traditional houses, government office building, convenient faciIities etc. Especilally there are some cultural properties, for instance,Sajik Park built around a stone altar called “Sajikdan (Historic Site No.121)”, Paiwha Girls' High School and College with a history of 100 years.
Last Saturday, I enjoyed strolling around Seochon village and sketching the variegated sceneries with Seoul urban sketchers all day long. It was a valuable experience at the familiar atmosphere!

Fabulous sketches. I love how you make even the modern buildings look as exotic and exciting as the temples.
