A few years ago I visited the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. This figurative painting is based on sketches made at the time and shows two children (twins presumably) playing on the outdoor chess set. Something about their matching outfits, their innocence and the oversized chess pieces & board made me want to capture that scene. I enjoyed trying to combine the softness of the figures with the harsher grid structure of the chess board in one composition.
