A painting in Wikipedia is defined as the practice applying a particular medium on a particular surface. The mostly commonly used forms of mediums is the practice of using a brush, sponges or even in some instances that practice of using knives.
So why would we use paint as a medium when trying to explore our creative side? You can have any choice of mediums like a digital medium or even Photoshop when you want to paint. But, the true classic and organic way for self expression is through the use of paint. Painting has been around for some 20,000 years and during the time when early humans created painting from charcoal, minerals and even different types of powders to creative images on the wall.
There are many artist out there who prefer the classic organic way of creative are through painting because it gives them a feel of being able to connect with whatever they are creating. Often times their imagination with the use of colors, shapes and lines to create a certain type of mood and feeling can truly be expressed in each brush stroke that a painter uses in his or her work.
As you can see paintings can be created with the perspective of creative a 3 dimensional space on a flat surface. The discovery of perspective in painting was created by two Italian painters. The first of the tow is Leon Battista Alberti and Filippo Brunelleschi. The two famous painters creative perspective painting by using a mathematical system and hundreds if not thousands of hours of experimenting to creative a certain look that gives the viewer a perspective that looks like it has dimension from within.
Regardless if the paintings that you love and are created by oil, water colors, pencil, pen or even air brush the results of a painter can leave many breathless. The time and effort and creativity that is put forth in ones paintings can take a person to a world they have never been to before. It is what we called taking a person into ones mental mind by letting them see from art the creativity and expression that one puts out from within.
