The very first paintings were found from the Top Paleolithic Age in Southwest France in the caverns , around 40,000 to 10,000 years ago, which reveals that picture is among the earliest artforms that exists
Technically, a picture is a two-dimensional artform which can be made up of layers of tones used onto an area. The surface which the pigment is applied varies from rock (utilized in the Paleolithic Age) to paper, timber, cloth and canvas.
So do the materials employed to generate the tones, as the area of pictures differ. Throughout during the Paleolithic Age colored earths adopted by plant extracts were employed and more recently artificial colors. There are many types of pictures, but amongst the well-known are polymer, oil, light, squirt paintings and watercolours.
