Judge's Comments: The freshness of this painting is striking, with its exciting color and confident brushwork. The angled figure is so well painted that I actually feel the weight of the man relaxing in his chair. Don't miss the angle of the pillow emphasizing this it is the inclusion of just such detail that so perfectly defines this moment the mood, the place, the time. - Kate Palmer
