Strictly speaking, to paint means applying pigments to substrates such as canvas, paper, ceramics, wood, glass, metal sheet or wall. Pigments are essentially solid, therefore a thinner is needed in order to bring them to a more liquid state, whether denser or more fluid, and a binder to obtain along-lasting adhesion to the medium.
The final product is an image that, depending on the artist's intentions, expresses his/her perception of the world or its representation, however, according to his/her personality, creativity and to his/her aesthetic taste and to that of the society that he/she belongs to.
