The Painting Process
by Asbjorn Lonvig, artist/designer
The draft has been exhibited
A gallery or a customer has bought the painting.
"soul hurting still"
acrylic on canvas
201 x 139 cm
In this case the painting "soul hurting still" is seen by a customer on www.lonvig.dk,
we have negotiated a price and agreed about framing and delivery etc.
The customer will frame it himself so I'll just roll it and send it to him.
He lives in Spain.
Take a look into my studio. I have decided not to use an aisle but to put the canvas on my
painting table. I transform the painting from the digital draft in different ways depending
on the motif. Ending up with a canvas with pencil lines.
The sequence of painting the different colors is depending on the motif, too.
In this case black is painted first and then every single field.
The painting with black color is finished.
Field by field is painted.
Hard work and accuracy.
Some of the colors are ajusted during the painting process.
Many days later.
The painting has been finished.
I am exhausted.

Artistic concept. My way of making art and design.
My view of art and design is controversial.
When I make drafts I use a pencil, a filling knife, a brush, a computer or something else.
