It was rainy and inclement weather, I joined in 40th World Wide SketchCrawl with Seoul sketchers around Jogyesa Temple located in downtown Seoul. Jogyesa Temple is an oasis of spiritual peace in the heart of the bustling metropolis. There are some historic cultural properties including traditional Korean architectures. Along the street around Jogyesa are many Buddhist specialty shops and some colorful facilities related to Buddhism. The traditional space in urban center is very interesting for our urban skechers. I sketched various sceneries here and there, looking around the peaceful temple.
도심사찰은 복잡하고 생동감 넘치는 현대도시에서 오아시스 같이 정서를 맑게 해 줍니다. 옛 것과 오늘이 공존하는 도시의 모습은 어반 스케쳐들에게 많은 흥미와 매력을 제공하는데, 특히 4대문 안의 문화재와 풍물들은 마르지 않는 스케치 소재라 할 수 있습니다.새로 참여하신 분들을 환영하며~~신선한 스케치와 더불어 많은 활약을 기대합니다.
