Here we go. #001, the first painting of the 1 Euro Experiment.

The general idea of the #001 painting  was to brand the “1€E” concept. Thought a black box with the logo and some stuff around it would do the trick.

It really is strange how a painting evolves. I was going down one path but ended  down a completely different path. To start with I made strokes of blue, purple, red, yellow, brown, green. It took a long time. Quite a lot of detail went into it, but I had no idea where I was going with it. Became frustrated and realised it looked kind of nasty. So I decided to cover it up. By chance I used some silver and I saw how the background now shined through. Thought that was an interesting effect so kept on with the silver. So something I didn´t like, ended up being a part of something I thought was OK.

Would I hang #001 on my own wall? Not likely, but I do like that its imperfect. The black box is mysteriously skewed, the letters of the “1€E” look awful, the “#001” even worse.  I seriously had trouble writing it. I found out that you need to control your breathing when writing letters otherwise the brush is all over the place.

But it is the first painting of many.  I look forward to improving my skills. I know I have oceans of learning to do.
