  Painting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Painting is the practice of applying pigment suspended in a carrier (or medium) and a binding agent (a glue) to a surface (support) such as paper, canvas or a wall.
Artistic painting is considered by many to be among the most important of the art forms.
Different types of paint are usually identified by the medium that the pigment is suspended or embedded in, which determines the general working characteristics of the paint, such as viscosity, miscibility, solubility, drying time, etc.

 Painting style - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In art and painting, style can refer either to the aesthetic values followed in choosing what to paint (and how) or to the physical techniques employed.
By changing the way they paint, apply colour, texture, perspective, or the way they see shapes and ideas, the artist establishes a certain set of "rules".
An artist may give the style a name such as "Expressionism", or a name may be applied later, as in the case of "abstract art".

Remember that what we're trying to do is to paint the figure with not only the base colour, but also the shadows and highlights painted on, and usually, due to the scale colour effect, with the shadows and highlights exaggerated compared to real life.
Basically, you paint on the dark colour first, then the mid colour over that, leaving the dark showing in the lower areas, and finally paint the light colour over the two previously applied layers onto the higher areas of the figure.
In this style, you paint the figure using the lightest of the three colours, which is then toned down using a wash of the darkest of the colours.
