Among the most famous pieces of art that are known to man today are paintings. Even in recent times, painting is a very good way to show, express and create art. The art of painting may sound very simple but for many artists around the country, painting takes more than just stroking a brush against a plain canvass.
An art painting definitely has a soul and it has a meaning to it too. As people have always said, art can be a good way to express yourself and to release emotions that you cannot say through words. With the art of painting, you create a piece that has a meaning to you, to other people and to the society. Aside from the cause of the artwork, the art of painting also includes a good manipulation of different materials, hues, shades and colors. Some of the most known ancient civilizations and other historical eras always had paintings to depict different social situations and to show visual history of the background of the said civilization that have transpired during those periods.
Painting may only be a hobby for some but it can also be therapeutic for many individuals. A successful painting is always one that can move other people and arrest them through its visual representation of a certain genre.
