White to Play

White to Play, oil, 38 x 26 cm

I really enjoyed painting this Commission as I do play chess myself (1830 rating). This was one of those paintings I really wanted to keep hold of myself. At least I can still enjoy looking at this photograph, although its not quite the same as looking at the real thing!

I hope you like it.

Another great painting Brett! 😎

Is there a prize for solving the puzzle?

f8= B, B move

Bg7+, Kg8

Kg6 with

Ne7++ unless...

But black can push white king to f6 so not an easy one!
