The act of putting paint, pigment, color, or another media to a solid surface is known as painting (called the “matrix” or “support”). Brushes are typically used to apply the medium to the base, although other tools such as knives, sponges, and airbrushes can also be employed.
Painting is a term used in art to denote both the act and the product of an action (the final work is called “a painting”). Paintings are supported by a variety of surfaces, including walls, paper, canvas, wood, glass, lacquer, pottery, leaf, copper, and concrete, while the painting itself may comprise sand, clay, paper, plaster, gold leaf, and even whole objects.
Painting is a popular visual art style that incorporates aspects including sketching, composition, motion (as in gestural painting), storytelling (as in narrative art), and abstraction (as in abstract art).  Paintings can be realistic and representational (as in still life and landscape painting), photographic, abstract, narrative, symbolistic (as in Symbolist art), emotional (as in Expressionism), or political (as in Artivism).
Religious art has dominated a significant section of the history of painting in both Eastern and Western art. Paintings depicting legendary creatures on pottery, Biblical scenes on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, and scenes from Buddha’s life are all examples of this type of painting (or other images of Eastern religious origin).
Painting is one of those activities that allow you to unwind, enjoy yourself, and learn all at the same time. We can’t picture life without colors, and a painting’s soul is defined by its color scheme.
Below mentioned are some of the reasons why painting makes a great hobby:
- You have the freedom to put your imagination on paper with the colors you want your aesthetic to embrace.
- It is an affordable and feasible way of killing your time and embracing a skill
- You learn patience with each piece of creation.
- It offers different mediums to choose from. You dont have to stick to just one form
- Painting has a long history and culture, with pioneers such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent Van Gogh changing people’s minds about nearly anything. There is no better sensation than being lost in the realm of art and then discovering yourself!
- It doesn’t require you to travel, making it comfortable to paint at home or wherever you like
