Note: Maria Gandarillas not been submitted to any other contest editions of Ynglada-Guillot. The author, who from very small and showed a talent for painting special hobby, began his training in Santander and Madrid completed after four years. The award led to a fundamental shift in his life, and has since devoted himself exclusively to artistic creation, very focused on drawing and painting the figure and especially in the portrait, which performs mostly on request. He has participated in group exhibitions in Madrid and Santander, and the last of his individual exhibitions, "Women" was held in March 2012 at the Central Library in his hometown. The winning work, which was inspired by her grandmother figure reflects an intimate, reminiscent of the genre scenes of Dutch and Flemish art. Gandarillas emphasizes the treatment of light and shadow, getting a sense of unreality and dreamy contrast to the precision and realism in dealing with the textures of the different elements and objects (facebook: http://www.facebook.
