Last Saturday, for the 53rd World Wide SketchCrawl, we Seoul sketchers gathered around Myeong-dong which is one of the most famous tourist attractions. We met and sketched at the Baerongnamu Cafe on the 12th floor, rooftop garden of UNESCO House building. After lunch, we moved and sketched freely here and there near Myeong-dong Cathedral.
I sketched some colorful sceneries around the cafe and the fascinating Myeong-dong street. It was such a nice autumn day!
청명한 가을하늘 아래... 밝은 마을 명동이 활짝 열리면
크고 작은 다채로운 빌딩과 휘황찬란한 색상이 뒤섞여
낮에는 햇살따라 밤에는 조명따라 변해가는 모습과
실핏줄같이 얽힌 골목에서 쏟아지고 흩어지는 인파의 물결
낭만과 유행, 소음과 경건함이 얽힌 도심의 오케스트라~ 
명동은 언제 보아도 살아있는 스케치 천국입니다.
