Runner up: Adrian Baynes

Runner up of the AJ/Kingspan Benchmark Sketch a facade

An exceptional work and meticulously drawn ellipse, flawless in its execution and done by a highly skilled draughtsman. The grading of shadow, solid to glass, and the roof ellipses shown beyond - particularly the rendering of the transparency - is incredibly difficult, but very convincingly done here.

Adrian is not my winner because the drawing was done in a studio and set up as a perspective, which goes against my idea of a ‘sketch’. His date seems to be May 2012, so it may have been drawn especially for the competition.
