Mumbai: If singing puts him in a good mood, painting also brings joy to Aamir Khan, who played a painter in critically acclaimed `Dhobi Ghat`.

"Painting, like singing, is something I really enjoy doing. Though I do it badly," said Aamir.

"I love singing, it puts me in a good mood. It disturbs the hell out of everyone around me, but it makes me feel very happy... painting also. I have realised that I am really a bad painter but when I am painting, I get so engrossed and I feel as if I am making something like a Picasso," the 46-year-old added at the launch of CDs and DVDs of `Dhobi Ghat`.

Despite his inexperience with paintbrush, colours and canvas, Aamir managed to complete a painting and gifted it to another painter of B-town, Salman Khan.

"The one painting that I have done in my life is on the sets of `Dhobi Ghat`, while they were lighting up, I did a full canvas and presented it to Salman. So, it`s in Salman`s house," said Aamir who also did an item number in `Delhi Belly`.

After "3 Idiots" in 2009, Aamir will be seen in a key role in Reema Kagti`s `Talaash`, co-produced by him, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. The cast of the film also features Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji.
