Painting

Painting is a creative expression where a coating of paint or pigment is applied to a surface or object to create an artistic composition. The most common instrument for painting is a brush, however, it can be applied using countless other tools. There is an endless range of paints which can be classified by the suspension medium for the pigment. The pigment determines the paint’s general characteristics like solubility, and viscosity or drying time. Different paint types include oil paints, acrylics, watercolor, hot wax, fresco, gouache, enamel, spray paints, tempera paints, and more.
