The National Museum of Korea is located about 1.5 km away from Yongsan Station. It is the largest museum in Korea and houses precious Korean cultural assets that tell the story of Korea’s fascinating history, from ancient times to the modern era. The architectural style harmoniously blends traditional and contemporary styles. It was built to house more than 140,000 national relics and artifacts, and also to serve as a complex cultural facility with a sculpture garden, open plaza and outdoor exhibition area. Also, artificial falls, streams, and green fields have been cultivated to create a beautifully landscaped space for visitors.
Last Saturday, in celebration of the 46th World Wide SketchCrawl, we Seoul usk members met at this magnificent museum and had a good sketch time.There were so many sketching objects that I couldn't help drawing busily in and out of the museum despite the cold wind. Nevertheless, it was informative and very interesting work to me.

용산의 명소----국립 중앙박물관 건물의 거대한 스케일 속에 간직하고 있는
국보 문화재의 수많은 볼거리들과 문화행사는 연중무휴 쉴 날이 없습니다. 
한국식 전통과 서구식 공간 사이에서 구석구석 조화로운 면들을 찾아보면서,
역사 공부와 함께 인물들과 풍물을 스케치를 하는 최적의 장소라 하겠습니다.

반갑습니다~~ 거대한 박물관이라 첨에는 긴장했었는데, 과감하게 맘을 먹고 부지런히 움직이며 여러 장면을 담을 수 있었지요. 오랫만에 평소에 하시는 멋진 스케치 작품도 보고 싶습니다.
