The art of painting is as old as the Human civilization itself. It is in human nature to recreate what he sees around himself and to record event. The earliest painting found date back to Thousands of years BC on walls of prehistoric caves. The prehistoric man used anything he could like bone, wood etc. to create this art. With evolution the art got refined. Man learnt how to make colors first by grinding elements of nature and now it has become so easy that all an artist has to do is drop at a store and get a box of his preferred colors or even easier just order online.
Art has evolved with time. Paintings have been a part of every culture and every civilization; some used painting for solely religious reasons while for others it was pure aesthetic pleasure. The human nature tends to get attracted towards beauty and beauty can be found in all peculiar things.
