Finished - 'PWM'


'PWM'
Ink on paper 45 x 32 cm.

Well, here it is. I've just completed the final act which is the signature.I love the final moment when I rub off the pencil to reveal a shining white name.That marks the finish.

Well done, Niall!
What a beautiful scenery. I'd even play chess in that scenery, I'd learn by inspiration. lol

I love the reality of the board and pieces. The sea and sky out there look wonderful. And the candle is riveting. You and yourself look amazingly real. What a great job you've done here, Niall!

SUPERB Niall. Want to ask you one thing--do the position of the pieces on the chess board mean anything? Or have you posed them randomly for aesthetics? How did you decide on the position of the pieces.(Sorry if you have answered it before--I seem to have missed it)

PS...I enjoy playing online chess via my 'Facebook' page. this picture represents a game I was having with Alan who is a good friend of mine..at this stage of the game I was doing very well or so I thought (I was playing white)..however, my confidence was short lived as within a few moves, I lost my queen.The game continued for around 5 more weeks but finished in a draw.
