Painting is a beautiful art form that once mastered can take you top of the world. It is very tough to draw flawless paintings, but there are many who do it on a daily basis. Painting as a profession doesn’t go very far because if someone paints for a profession, then he/she is not creative, but the reason they have picked up the paintbrush is to provide food to their families. A creative person needs to be creative, or else his/her creativity will perish with time.
