The Straw Hat

' I very much enjoy drawing what I persuade myself is an Edwardian dress.  The ladies I have drawn are usually pursuing domestic acticities - they are passionate about potted plants - but this time I wanted them to be younger and more relaxed, so I hope the straw hat provides an invitation to the pleasures of outdoors, ones in which I hope the spectator is able to join.  - Quentin Blake, June 2019
