The Escoda Barcelona Award

The winner of The Escoda Barcelona Award is Brendan Smith for his painting ‘Sunset, Ventnor’

Brendan says:

This painting depicts the autumn sun setting over the coast of the Isle of Wight seen from the cliffs above Ventnor. The receding land melts into the warm light of the sun while the town below is already falling into dark shadow. A light mist over the calm sea reflects a pearly light.
