Even at this early date, his work was characterized by a conception of the figure as if seen in low relief, drawn with clear contours, and minimizing strong contrasts of light and shadow which would indicate fully modeled forms. Maturity[edit] Painting. Painting is the practice of applying paint, pigment, color or other medium[1] to a surface (support base).


The medium is commonly applied to the base with a brush but other implements, such as knives, sponges, and airbrushes, can be used. Paintings may have for their support such surfaces as walls, paper, canvas, wood, glass, lacquer, clay, leaf, copper or concrete, and may incorporate multiple other materials including sand, clay, paper, gold leaf as well as objects.

In art, the term painting describes both the act and the result of the action. However, the term is also used outside of art as a common trade among craftsmen and builders.

History[edit] Some of the earliest surviving painted portraits of people, who were not kings or emperors, are the funeral portraits that survived in the dry climate of Egypt's Fayum district.


These are almost the only paintings from the classical world that have survived, apart from frescos, though many sculptures survive, and portraits on coins. They were represented during several stages of their lives. The faces of gods were also depicted. To date, no portraits of women have been found.
