Last Saturday, it was cold weather for sketching outdoors. Besides the fine dust has covered Seoul in recent days. Seoul urban sketchers met at Jongno Tower, a landmark building in downtown Seoul, and sketched comfortably inside the modern building. 
It was a weekend, so the office floors of the building were vacant and quiet to sketch without interruption. I sketched the spectacular scenes looking down through the window on the 8th and 20th floor inside the 33-story glass building. After lunch, I sketched an interior scene of the Jongno Bookstore, basement 2nd floor, and an outdoor scene in front of  the Jongno Tower. 
Thanks all participants for having a pleasant sketch time!

새해맞아 여러날 추위와 미세먼지가 도시를 덮었어도
종로타워의 내부공간은 스케치의 온실 같았습니다.

창밖으로 내려다보는 도시경관은 방향과 높이에 따라서 
천양각색의 형태와 색조의 흐름이 다양하게 전개되고

하루하루 조금씩 변하면서 투명하게 다가오는 모습들이 
서울의 살아있는 모습을 비추는 거울처럼 느껴집니다~~

크고작은 건물들이 사이좋게 나름의 질서가 잡으며
실재보다 더 설득력있게 다가오네요~~

지상에서 볼 때는 스카이라인으로 느껴지는데, 높은 곳에서 볼수록 입체적인 스케일의 상호관계가 복잡하게 얽히면서도 재미있는 요소가 많이 담겨있어요~~
창밖의 도시 풍경은 정말 다양하면서도 매력적인 소재입니다.
