Eastbourne Tennis

I always enjoy visiting the Towner gallery when I’m in Eastbourne. I dropped off my cards (including my new Eastbourne card). Currently there’s a great exhibition: Designing the Everyday. Wonderful examples of Eric Ravillious designs for Wedgewood, Shell Posters and more recently the work of St Judes designers.

The Eastbourne tennis championships are on at Devonshire Park (next door).  I enjoyed relaxing in the sunshine and watching the tennis players. I thought it would be a challenge trying to capture their movements.

Wimbledon tennis

Made it to Wimbledon again this year. Very lucky last year to get women final tickets through the public ballot. This year, also happy to receive entry ticket’s to grounds and number 1 court. Sat on Henman Hill to watch the Nadal v Djokovic final along with thousands of others.  Bit of a squeeze but got a good spot and there was a great atmosphere. Enjoyed picnic with wine in the humid heat. Before I got absorbed in the tennis, I did a few sketches.
