10월 두 번째 어반스케치 모임 장소는 하루 평균 9만여 명이 이용하는 대한민국 수도인 서울의 관문, '서울역'입니다. 오전에 3층에 자리한 푸드코트에서 만나 점심 식사 후에는 '서울로 7017'로 이동할 예정입니다. 2015년 폐쇄되었던 서울역 고가는 2017년에 도심 속의 공원으로 재 탄생하였습니다. 국내 최초의 고가 보행로인 서울로 7017을 거닐면서 서울의 풍경을 다시 한번 새로운 시각으로 느껴 보시기 바랍니다.

Bukchon Hanok Village where traditional Korean houses called hanok form a group, which encompasses Gahoe-dong, Hwa-dong, Jae-dong, and Samcheong-dong in Jongno-gu. This village has been a traditional residential district for more than 600 years of the history of Seoul. The day for the 35th World Wide SketchCrawl, we faced up to an unexpected difficulty.The stormy weather went on all day. In spite of the wet conditions, we had a pleasant sketch time enjoying cultural walks around Bukchon Village. Bukchon particularly, is my birthplace where I was born. While sketching some familiar sceneries lasted a long time, many memories of my childhood were brought back in rapid succession.
Today was the worst day as far as I remembered in my outdoor painting. Windy, rainy, cold.... But new comer, Lee Mi-na, made us delighted. She came from Daegu city located nearly 300 km far from Seoul by KTX train to participate in this sketchcrawl in spite of bad weather. We were glad to meet her and hoped to come as often as she could. She would send her nice drawings with colored pencil for posting. We couldn't sketch much though the Bukchon Hanok Village was very beautiful in Spring. Welcome and thank you all!

The Korean Orthodox Church (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church) is an Eastern Orthodox church in Korea. Built in a Greek style, although not that big, the church’s oxidized copper-green dome and matching cross are easily noticeable from the approach and the surroundings. Though it was a bit cold and windy on the street, inside the courtyard of the church it was shiny and seemed to be so peaceful. I sketched the elegant and beautiful church here and there in earnest.
New participants are welcome to join our Seoul urban sketchers! Thanks.
