#50th World Wide SketchCrawl at Myeong-dong

I started first drawing at Lotte Cinema hall at 6th floor of Lotte department.

Cold weather of -15 degrees made us hard to expect many sketchers to join. But two brave new comers, Han Ju-hyeon and Kim Kyu-hun, came for sketching together. Much thanks to Lee Yong-hwan and Yun Young-sook from Yongin city too.
But the inside of department was warm for us to put off thick coats while sketching on bright bridge looking down both sides of urban features. We shared new comers' nice sketches which were made before. Those were inspiring. After having lunch we moved into Coffee Bean located across Myeongdong Cathedral. The place was nice for sketchers with good scenery through pane glass moving the ground floor to 2nd floor freely. After finishing we gathered at the plaza of '1898 Myeongdong Cathedral', basement of the cathedral, which was rebuilt under the previous parking lot. Sharing works done all day was always worthy for all of us. We shared experiences and tips.
Thank you so much for participating with courage and love for sketching together!

All the week of your extra stay after your work was very cold. So I wondered whether you would keep traveling well. But I believed you would have enjoyed all the visiting famous places and markets for I knew your rich experiences in world wide trips. I'll visit your blog looking forward to seeing your great drawings too!
Best wishes, Happy New Lunar Year!
