Judge's Comments: This is a compelling composition, with the angled lines of the pinned-up sketch and the angled shadows on the table creating a pleasing tension. In this predominantly tonal work, I love the deep red of the string holding the starfish and the echoes of that hue in the beautifully rendered seashells. These small touches of color enliven this sensitively painted still life. - Kate Palmer
