Chess with Granda

Chess with Granda

I really enjoy looking around a domestic scene like this. You’ve really captured that look of concentration

Thanks for your encouraging comment, Diana - much appreciated.

Super painting what a sentiment it holds

This is great Jan, your son is looking very calm and composed whilst Grandad seems a little concerned, check mate to your son I reckon!

Thanks for your nice comments, Anne and Russell. You're right, Russell - poor Granda was a victim of my son's calm and ruthless chess playing!

Wonderful painting, like this a lot Jan

Excellent! You’ve really captured them both and the stillness of concentration.

Thank you for your kind comments, Heather and Fiona...

Just lovely!

Wonderful composition.

Great subject Jan, lovely painting.

Thank you for your generous comments, Tessa, Stephen and Fiona...

Lovely work Jan.

Super painting that captures the battle of wits so well.

A really good painting Diana. You can really appreciate the relationship between the boy and his Grandfather in the way you’ve demonstrated this in your painting. Both are concentrating so hard!

Thank you for your encouraging comments, Denise, Chris and Spencer - you're right that they were both concentrating intently on the game!

Great painting- lovely study of figures and surroundings. The details are excellent.

Hang on Studio Wall

My son and father-in-law playing chess - a tense game! Palette knife with oils on 10 x 12 inch canvas board.
