Need A Ceiling Wash Wall Sconce

Any recommendations? fixture is only 16" down from ceiling, and ceiling slopes down away from wall with a 2:12 slope. This is exterior but well protected. Something like the attached for looks. Ideal light distribution would be what an R30 flood bulb does, perpendicular out from the wall, but with half the light completely blocked so you're not looking at a bulb.

Re: Need A Ceiling Wash Wall Sconce

I should mention that each fixture will light a 4x12' space. So 500-1000 lumens is a good range.
