Hi! My name is Elly. I grew up all around the world and currently live in Abu Dhabi. I like most types of art, such as paintings and sketches. In our grade 8 art class we are working on replicating professional artwork on canvas. We are focusing on being accurate in aspects such as color, shape, and modifying the original image to fit on the canvas. I decided to do an acrylic painting called, “Horizon” by Linas Jusionis. I chose this piece because I found it interest how Jusionis chose to put the ‘gate’ in front of the horizon. This was one of my first acrylic paintings on canvas and I found that I liked painting like this and would like to create more paintings like this. I am inspired by artists such as Claude Monet. I find his abstract artwork different than most and also what he chooses to paint is basic but inspiring. Coming to Abu Dhabi is the famous Louvre, everyone is very excited to see how it turns out.
