Last Saturday, we Seoul sketchers met at  Ewha Womans University(이화여자대학교). It was founded on 1886 by Mary F. Scranton, an American missionary of the Methodist Episcopal Church.The campus located in central Seoul with surrounded natural greens and a number of old and contemporary buildings nearby one of the most popular shopping district in Seoul.
Across the heart of the Ewha Womans University, the recently completed ECC (Ewha Campus Complex) shaped valley, is Korea’s largest underground campus. The ECC provides students with various services, from learning to cultural activities, all under the one roof. In a whole campus, lots of historic stone buildings and modern high-rise buildings are mixed intimately and harmoniously.
It was a little hot during the day, but the natural air conditioning from the wood offered a cool atmosphere for sketching.  I enjoyed sketching the beautiful campus buildings and several colourful scenes.

도심의 숲 속에 평화로이 자리하고 있는 웰빙 캠퍼스~~
역사를 간직한 옛 모습들과 새로 들어선 현대식 건축물들이 조화롭습니다. 
새 현대식 명물인 ECC 건물은 땅 속의 마당,  숨은 듯 열려 있는 현대식 조형미와
학생과 시민들을 융화시키는 시원한 광장이 빛과 함께 많은 이야기를 쏟아냅니다.
작은 것들의 아름다움, 숲과 길과 언덕, 아늑함을 찾아서 스케치하기 좋은 장소입니다.

아담하고 멋진 스케치 장소이지요. 아기자기하고 다양한 소재가 넘치고~~ 건축물의 콘트라스트와 도시와 숲, 고전과 현대의 조화로운 모습들이 매력적입니다.

Free and rough pencil drawing is prominent upon water colors. I like this hilarious atmosphere on your painting. Hoping to learn from you at times, and wishing all the best,
