For me a painting is like a story which stimulates the imagination and draws the mind into a place filled with expectation, excitement, wonder andpleasure. Painting is one of the art forms that have always attracted people. It is a visual art that makes use of any number of drawing instruments to mark a two-dimensional medium. Commoninstruments include inked brushes, graphite pencils, pen and ink, crayons, charcoals, chalk, pastels, markers, stylus, or various metals like silverpoint.
The most common support for painting is paper,although other materials such as cardboard, plastic, leather, canvas and board, may be used. Temporary drawings may be made on a blackboard or whiteboard, or indeed almost anything. The medium has alsobecome popular as a means of public expression via graffiti art. Life is like a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.
"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary"When I was a child, I loved to color. Sometimes still, when I get bored, I will pick up a pencil and do some painting. It’s almost a therapy, just a few minutes to relax and do something useless.Painting holds a certain freedom-ducks can be blue and the sunshine green. Painting is a point of expression. It represents the acknowledgement of colors, the ability to identify objects or animals,and understanding of diversity. "The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless."
"No amount of skilful invention can replace the essential element of imagination." It hasoften been said, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” which I would have to disagree with. In my mind, art forms such as painting are worth more than a photograph, and can have more meaning than,“a thousand words.” Photography may be a more effective and reasonably inexpensive alternative to painting, but more thought and feeling goes into a painting than a photograph.
