Last Saturday, it was fine to sketch outdoors. For the 55th World Wide SketchCrawl, we Seoul urban sketchers met at Buam-dong, Jongno-gu in Seoul. Buam-dong is a charming village in central Seoul that was once occupied mostly by artists and writers.
Today, modern galleries, coffee shops, and restaurants stand side by side with old mills and barber shops on the narrow alleyways. The historic village harmonizes with Bugaksan Mountain and Inwangsan Mountain, and is famous for various tourist attractions.
On the morning of SketchCrawl day, for some unavoidable reasons, I couldn't help
joining with sketchers in the afternoon. The day before, I visited for preliminary survey and drew some sketches in advance. I was absorbed in sketching colorful sceneries of important places here and there around Buam-dong village till late in the afternoon. It was very pleasant sketch time in the beautiful village with Seoul usk members.
