Painting is the practice of applying pigments, paint colour or another medium to a solid surface (matrix or substrate). The medium (oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolour, pastel, ink, spray, etc.) is usually applied at the base with a brush, but other tools, such as knives, sponges and airbrushes, can be used. The final work is also called a painting.

Painting is an important form in the visual arts, bringing elements such as drawing, gesture (gestural painting), composition, narrative (narrative art) or abstraction (abstract art). Paintings can be naturalistic and figurative (still life or landscape), photographic, abstract, narrative, symbolic (symbols), emotional (expressionism) or political (artivism).

In art, the term painting describes both the act, the medium and the result of the action. The support for paintings includes surfaces such as walls, paper, canvas, wood, glass, lacquer, pottery, sheet paper, copper and concrete, and can incorporate multiple other materials such as sand, clay, paper, plaster, gold leaf, as well as objects.
