Art Competition Award.
My work "Forte de Gragoata" was awarded acquisition prize at Forte de Copacabana Art Competition
Forte de Gragoatá -sandra nunes- oil on canvas 70 x 100cm
The creative Process:
The theme for the competition was "Forts and Fortress in Brazil and around the World"
I decided to focus my research in Rio de Janeiro state area as I wanted to work from the natural, not from photographs.
My choice was Forte de São Domingos de Gragoatá that is located on a rocky promontory in the bucolic district of Gragoatá in Niterói
work in progress
Receiving the certificate from the Director of Copacabana Fort Historic Museum .
