Attack and Defence (depicting a table tennis point being played). Largely continuous lines. Mick Burton, 1973

I have played table tennis since I was 13 years old and am finding it tough going in Leeds Division one this year as a 70 year old. After I started my Continuous Line Drawings in the 1960’s I realised that there were continuous lines in table tennis. The movement of the ball back and forth throughout the point and the path of the bat in your hand, sometimes in figure of eight as you do forehand and then backhand hits. So my picture depicts the attacker on the left mostly sweeping his bat upwards for topspin and the defender on the right sweeping downwards under the ball forbackspin.
