Sarah's paintings for Yr 12 College Art Boards

Sarah has worked extremely hard this year and produced some amazing work for her Year 12 portfolio. Sarah has been coming to MEGANZ SVA since 2014. I have seen a consistent improvement over the years because of the effort and passion she has applied to her work. 
Her theme for this year was 'Innocence and Menace'. Using old abandoned theme parks for an added eerie dimension. Well done Sarah. Amazing work!
The above image is a detail of a work.


This painting is a detail of one of the acrylic paintings. Sarah has a lovely painterly style.

Heidi really enjoys creating new characters. These are a few developing drawings from her visual diary. Looking great so far. Love to see them when they are fully formed.
