Namdaemun(Sungnyemun), National Treasure No.1, was built in 1398. It served as the gate through the fortress walls surrounding the downtown Seoul. Moreover it is one of the most recognized landmarks in Korea. Nearby is Namdaemun Market, Korea's largest and most prominent conventional open market. Also within walking distance are lots of modern cultural heritages and tourist attractions. On the 41th World Wide Sketchcrawl, It was fine weather for sketching, I sketched around Namdaemun with Seoul urban sketchers pleasantly.

언제 보아도 소재가 넘치는 남대문 일대를 돌며 스케치 열기에 흠뻑 빠진 날이었습니다. 
스케치 분위기를 한껏 북돋게 하신 이정권 선생님과 새로오신 분들을 환영하며~~
Lucky Seoul의 찬가가 세월을 넘어 울려 퍼지는 느낌을 받았습니다.
