We had to make a poster advertising something. We were allowed to chose a theme ourselves and we had to use our own pictures. Coming from London, I have a few pictures from there. So this is what I ended up with.

Today, our task was to find "interesting" things in our environment. The light wasn't fantastic, so it was a bit hard but we tried... Here are some pictures me and Sara took.
Hmm... A wall...
Tree and grass and stuff...
Aaaaand finally, a bench.

Today, our task was simply to manipulate some pictures - making them black and white, and then bringing out some colours to highlight something or other in the picture.
I thought it was quite interesting that I automatically highlighted anything red! ... well, at least in most of the pictures. Here are some of them...

One of our first tasks this year was to make a self-presentation using pictures. We were only allowed to pick 5pictures max. and I picked the pictures you see bellow. I'll leave it to you to find out what each picture has to say about me. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words...
WARNING: Be nice.

So, In my "Trykk&Foto" class, we've been working on monoprints. I've had a lot of fun with mine - mostly experimenting (which means throwing paint around and seeing what comes out of it) I've never understood the point of abstract art until now. It's an amazing way in which you can express yourself.
This is my dad's favorite, funnily enough... It didn't turn out as good as I wanted it to - I used too much paint. But it still looks interesting. I've used some different techniques on this one.
Now this is different to my other work. It's a collage - the only one I made. I was basically just improvising, but when I look at it, it reminds me of two cows in a feild. Maybe you see something different... that's "abstract" for you.
I really like this one... there's not much I can say about it - all I can say is that I had fun.
I think this is my favorite piece. It was a risky experiment but I love the end result - it reminds me of autumn. The blue stands out from the warm colors in the background and creates a nice contrast.
Another lovely accident...
These were actually the templates I made for my prints - they're nice themselves. They were made on plastic sheets... I think it could be fun to hang them on my windows.
This one was one of my first practice pieces. It almost looks 3D... it's amazing what kind of shapes and shades you get just by making squiggles with a piece of cardboard...
I think I had most fun with this one. I just splashed paint all over the place and some lovely shapes came out! It's a fun piece.
This reminds me of Australia - don't ask why... it just does.
