A few days ago, I had a chance to sketch at Yonsei University Sinchon Campus near my office. Yonsei University was established in 1885 with an educational mission based on the Christian principles of truth and freedom, and that is not only one of the oldest universities but also the top three comprehensive universities in Korea.
The campus is located in Sinchon minutes away from the center of the metropolis downtown Seoul, and is well arranged in a colorful and natural setting with mix of old and new buildings.
I sketched some symbolic sceneries of the campus among the number of buildings, and enjoyed campus-life atmosphere with the university students.

Very interesting paintings. Especially that church(second painting) is the most interesting because I also once tried to draw while my father was in the hospital. Well, it looks just like yours^^

Thanks. I agree with you about the church because of the dynamic and smart appearance.
