Sports for Ladies

'I discovered that I very much enjoyed drawing ladies in large one-piece Edwardian dress. To begin with they were tending their potted plants and similar activities, but it also came to me that these were not the characters or the costumes appropriate to playing rugby or tossing the caber; so of course I felt I couldn’t wait to draw them just as soon as possible.' - Quentin Blake, June 2019
