Sketchbook Saturday #2: Tennis Sketches
We rather enjoy watching the tennis whenever it comes on TV! I also like to pull out my sketchbook and see if I can draw the players while they’re playing. It’s a tricky challenge but much like gesture drawing it encourages me to focus on the main movement and lines of the figures in order to capture the essence of the action.
Some of these sketches are rather old but I’m quite pleased with the way they came out. There are a few scribblings here that aren’t based on tennis players – when I was getting frustrated at not getting opportunities to draw things then I’d just doodle other stuff.
