The commission for this piece was very specific; the placing of the Queen with the pawns laid on their side to prove her superiority. The original chessboard was dark brown and cream which I did not think would work as a painting, so I went with purple and blue tones.
This piece is 10 x 10” and was painted on deep canvas. It took me 7 hours in all to complete. I charge by the hour, at the moment £30, so the total cost was £245 plus materials.
Please get in touch if you have an idea for a commission. My paintings are usually 9×9” framed in white. I also sell prints at www.iamfy.co/shop/miche
