It was very fine neither hot as of last summer nor cold or windy. 10 sketchers gathered including five new comers. We started at the Baerongnamu Cafe located at the 12th rooftop garden of Korean National Commission for UNESCO(유네스코한국위원회). Myeong-dong is one of the most frequented downtown in Seoul where lots of tourists visit to see and experience lively mood of Seoul. There the building stands in the busiest street. But the rooftop garden has somewhat different atmosphere by seemingly natural feature though it was artificially cultivated. Nobody would imagine how the machine room was changed into such a nice space. 
After having lunch we kept sketching here and there. On the way to the cathedral I found a big bazaar was held at the ground of cathedral. People were busy to see and buy goods. I sketched two seated on chair comfortably. Because the church is beautiful and historical it's loved by newly wedding couple for taking photos. While drawing the church a couple was posing by the order of photographer. I captured them too.
At 3:30 we met at the backyard to see our works. Sharing and appreciating was there.

Participants : Lee Yong-hwan, Yun Young-sook, Lee Joung-sook, Kim Yeon-jae, Yoo Byung-hwa, new comers - William, Yun Hyang-ran, Park Ha-young, Park Hyoun-sook, Yi Ji-hyun. 

Thank you all!

회장님 만나서 반가웠습니다.
그림은 잘은 못 하지만 용기를 내어 참석해 보려합니다.

좀 세월이 흘렀지만 늘 새로 시작하는 스케쳐의 마음을 가지려는 회원이구요. 앞으로도 자주 뵙고 그림, 이야기 나눌 수 있으면 좋겠어요.
어려운 성모상 멋집니다. 성모님도 기도 들어주시겠지요.
