First sketchwalk with Usk Seoul

There couldn't have been a better venue in Seoul to start sketching with the urban sketchers! Last Saturday on a bright sunny morning we gathered at the Ewha Womans University, one of the most prestigious universities in the country, that has been around since 1886. The first thing I noticed when I stepped into the campus was the large number of tourists as well as locals ambling leisurely on its sprawling green grounds. A lot of them were taking pictures, some were relaxing on benches and others were cooling off under a tree with iced coffee. 



After saying hello to the group and receiving a very warm welcome in return, I along with a few others sketchers went scouting for location. Turns out, the university isn't just a historical landmark and a must-see sight on the guidebook, it is also a delightful place to spend hours sketching and painting.

Only a short walk from the ECC (Ewha Campus Complex) building brought us to this charming stone Gothic structure nestled in greenery. The sky was a cool blue and except the sound of breeze rustling through the leaves and chirping of birds, it was really quiet. It took me about 40 mins to finish the line work using a dip pen and ink. I coloured the sketch later as I had to rush off but not without the desire to come back again.
