sketches of local church buildings

[By Lee Yong-hwan in Seoul, Korea]

 Many kinds of churches bring neighborhood to life showing various forms and symbolic images. In a residential area, the church is often the focal point for the local community.

Every church usually is a great place for sketchers to explore a number of drawing subjects. 

For the last several days, I’ve sketched some church buildings located in Seodamun-gu and Eunpyeong-gu, northwest Seoul near my village. 

 Nokbeon-dong Catholic Church, Eunpyeong-gu,

 Munhwachon First Presbyterian Church, Seodamun-gu, 

 Seoul Hongsung  Community Church, Seodamun-gu,

 Eunpyeong Methodist Church, Eunpyeong-gu,

Yeonhui Methodist Church, Seodamun-gu,
