Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or a similar medium to a surface. In art, the term painting describes both the act and the result of the action.

Painting is a way of creative expression, and the forms are numerous. Drawing, composition or abstraction, among other aesthetics, may serve to manifest the expressive and conceptual intention of the painter. Paintings can be naturalistic, photographic and abstract, can contain narrative content, symbolism, emotion or be political in nature.
