The Chess Player/ Portrait of a Man With Folded Arms. 2011. Oil on canvas.
20" x 16" (50 x 40cm)
For Sale - Enquire

A portrait painting in oils that brings out the resolute and strong character of the subject. Begun and completed in the studio.

After living with this portrait for a while after I had painted it, it occurred to me that the sitter looked as if he were a man playing chess (not actually the case), so I have renamed the piece 'The Chess Player'. I am considering painting a rook (chess piece) in the bottom right hand corner, as the illusion that the sitter is studying a chess game is strong for me.

Please contact me for a higher resolution image. Sizes given are approximate. This is an original oil painting carried out from life and not a print.
