I contiued to  work o the piece but I am still struggling with the background characters...though I think that it is bit better. I am thinking of limiting myself 13 more brushstrokes  because I have a tendency to work over and over it..killing it and trying again. Resolve it or not it will be time to move on to the next painting                                                                                                 
OK, this one  needs work. I decided to try to tie in the chess pieces in back with the background but it did not work out. Perhaps they just need to go away. The pawn on the other hand seems to be in a Win win situation.

  1. I love the knight. ...a good argument for more figurative elements.
    On the 3 wallflowers in the background, you might try more hue contrast on the closer pawn... & lose the line at the top ...
    All right, it's getting late ~good knight, sleep tight.
