“As an artist normally working on large scale canvases, I was intrigued by the challenge of painting small chess pieces. I tried to be true to my style of art employing drips of colour as I use on my canvases. I kept the variety of paint in one tone and then applied a contrasting colour to expose even more the quality of the primary layer. I chose extreme contrast in my colour selection for the opposing pieces for a true ‘CHESS FIGHT’ ”
