"Street Chess Players Two"

In Street Chess Players Two (above), the three players are from sketches and photos in Hawaii. They originally had aloha shirts. The background setting is from the U.S. Chess Championship in 1984,  held at the Student Union Building of the University of California at Berkeley.

In this painting, I decided to be truer to the feeling of the matches in Berkeley, as well as the beaches in California and Hawaii. The games there did not have as many spectators, and single players were warming up on lone chess boards.
