This year’s worthy winner was Alan Vann with his beautiful and atmospheric watercolour painting of “Sunrise over Heybridge Basin” with 12 votes.  In a “Titanic battle” with 11 votes joint runners-up were Alan again with “Balloon over the Blackwater”, Sheila Deal with “Canal at Dusk” and Peter Robson with Racing Red".
