This has just been added to my art on SaatchiArt.com - over 20 works on there now, most of them exclusively!
Limited Original Edition of 19 + 2 a/p. Pigment ink on canvas; varnished by hand, often with slightly tinted highlights. Image Size: 81.3 x 101.6 cm (32 x 40 in) Sometimes it's hard to tell the players from the pieces, and sometimes a bishop looks like a pawn. Signed and numbered. Unframed; safely shipped in a sturdy tube. Each original includes a 2-inch painted border to facilitate gallery wrapping.
