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.

The most famous painters and art works are:
  • Léonard de Vinci with "Mona Lisa" or "La Joconde".
  • Raphael with "The School of Athens"
  • Michel-Angel "Adam's Creation"
  • "The Young Girl with the Pearl" by Johannes Vermeer
  • Rembrandt's "Night Round"
  • Claude Monet and his "Water lilies"
  • Vincent Van Gogh's "La nuit étoilée"
  • "Guernica" by Pablo Picasso
  • Gustav Klimt "The Kiss"
  • "The Persistence of Memory" by Salvador Dali
  • Grant Wood's "American Gothic"
  • "Bal du moulin de la Galette" by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
  • "Mont Sainte-Victoire" by Paul Cézanne
  • "Le Cri" by Edvard Munch
  • "Nighthawks" by Edward Hopper.

Acrylic painting is a recent pictorial technique, using a mixture of coloured pigments and synthetic resins. Acrylic is diluted with water, dries very quickly, remains stable and very solid over time. His work must therefore be very fast, because it is impossible to rework on a linen or canvas frame again.

Acrylic painting is one of the techniques most used by painters. Easy to use (dilution, miscibility, multi-support) and inexpensive, it allows you to create large paintings without the complexity of oil painting.

There are also several other products, called mediums, that can give effects to acrylic paint. They bring originality to the material, such as matt or glossy surface effects, or different textures and finishes.

The portrait is a graphic genre representing with resemblance, an identified person, showing an interest in his or her history, personality or physical. The self-portrait represents the author himself.
