Introducing Myself, Mariam

Introducing Myself:

Hello, my name is Mariam, and I am an 8th grade student at ACS Abu-Dhabi. I love drawing for the fun of it, I am also inspired by many famous artists such as Vincent van Gogh (who doesn't love him!) as well as Salvador Dali. My father is an architect, and so I learn from the best, and get splendid tips and advice from him. I haven't done many painting in the past, but decided to try some this year, and it didn't turn out too bad! I am looking forward to trying new styles ad techniques in art, and can't wait to start 3D art! In this unit in our art class, we are taking an artwork tat already exists from Google Art Project and tried to copy it using acrylic painted so here is a picture of the original and my copy, which I cut off a little from the top and the side so it would fit onto the canvas.

  1. Hi Mariam, your interest in Art is evident in your artwork. I like the way how the copy is almost exactly like the original. I like the way that you have tried out painting and are willing to try other art techniques. I think that you have a talent in Art and I would love to see your drawings. This is a very good piece of Art and I look forward to seeing more of your Art.

    2. Sorry I had just seen this comment, I am actually interested in to painting and I like portraits of fruit. My teacher has suggested an idea of collaboration and so maybe we could collaborate on a piece of art.

  2. I agree with Vihan that your artwork reflects your interest in Art. When I looked at your art, it was just like the original piece that I couldn't see a difference between the two! I hope you enjoy trying out other new techniques, I was wondering have you ever tried one point perspective drawings? it is sort of like architecture and I think you will really enjoy it. I hope that you will post your next art piece as well, because I really did enjoy this one!

    1. Thank you so much, it means a lot. I have tries 1 point perspective, as well as two point perspective. This year I did cylinder perspective, it was really challenging, but still fun! Hope to see your artwork soon and I will keep posting, as I keep making (artwork).

  4. Hi Miriam, I love your work. I think you have great talent. This is very evident in your work. I think you show great attention to detail. I love how accurate you work is. I would't be able to tell if you'd only just started painting. What is an Artwork tat?
    I'm really looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    1. I will post more artwork, once I get more done! What do you mean "What is an Artwork tat?" Is that just a typo, or am I just misreading the question?

    2. Oh so sorry..... I just realized that I am the one who wrote artwork tat.. my apologies, I meant to say artwork THAT already existed. My bad, sorry.

  5. Hello Miriam! I love your work, you've spent a lot of time making this fantastic and the attention to detail is fantastic. I can clearly see your how much you love art in your very own art. Its great as it is but if you wanted to enhance the painting I would strongly suggest you measure the shapes to make them straight making it more appealing to the human eye! Thanks and i'm really looking forward to see more of your work, keep it coming!

    1. Thanks for the advice! I didn't do the shapes free hand though, I printed the original in a smaller size, and used the gridding technique to make it as accurate as I possibly can, although I would agree that the lines aren't that straight, and that is only because the lines in the painting weren't strait either, and so I ended up making it a little too curved. I hope to learn from my mistakes.

  7. Hi Mariam! I love your artwork and standards are very high. Your recreation of the original is so realistic. It is very detailed and manipulation of the colours is done to an excellent standard. I loved it! :)

  11. Hi Mariam! I love how you looked really closely at the details so that it looks really similar to the original. I love how your art is really abstract. I couldn't spot a difference between the two! I hope to see more of your work

  13. Hi Mariam! I really like your artwork and it looks a lot like the original. The colors you used were nice and bright and were very close to the colors used in the actual painting. You should practice trying to have a little more texture in your drawings, but you painted very neatly with straight lines. I also really like Vincent Van Gogh and I was wondering what artist made the original painting that you painted a copy of. You also had to think a lot about layering in this painting like shapes overlapping other shapes. You should practice doing more paintings like this so you can become perfect in this type of artwork!
