Cheonggyecheon (청계천) is an 11 km long stream that rises near Bugaksan Mt. and Inwangsan Mt. and flows from the west to the east of downtown Seoul. Created as part of an urban renewal project, Cheonggyecheon is a restoration of the stream that was once there before during the Joseon Dynasty. It's very serene with small waterfalls, and nearly two dozen overhead bridges. Cheonggye Plaza(청계광장) in Sejong-ro(세종로), one of the busiest boulevards in Seoul, is situated at the fountainhead of Cheonggyecheon Stream. There were overflowing with colorful sceneries and crowds including lots of foreign tourists.  
The weather was so fine, I sketched with Seoul usk members around Cheonggyecheon Stream and Plaza. We enjoyed sketching several fantastic scenes such as buildings, stream, waterfall, people, streetscapes, and so on.
600년 서울의 중심이며 치수사업의 본원인 청계천이 어둠에서 나와 시민의 품으로 돌아오고~~이제는 관광명소로 거듭나고 있습니다.
안락한 쉼터, 상징 광장와 각종 행사, 갖가지 볼꺼리들. 주변의 다채로운 도시경관들...20개가 넘는 다리와 긴 웰빙 산책로를 따라 엄청난 스케치 소재들~~ 시리즈 작품을 해 볼만한 좋은 장소입니다.

사물놀이 공연할 때 그걸 그려야하나 같이 뛰어들어 놀아야하나 했었는데.... 나중에 현장전시회에 그거 그린 분들이 좀 있어서... 아, 다들 그리는구나했습니다.

청계천은 이야깃거리 많고, 다채롭고, 길면서도 지루하지 않고, 높낮이와 원근 깊이에 따라 무궁무진한 소재가 나올 만한 좋은 스케치 장소입니다~~ 그리는 환경이 쾌적한 것도 좋았습니다.
