I voted human. For the science of painting, it's tough to beat a robot...but for the art of painting, no robot can get close to what a human can do. It is easy to program a robot to do the repetitive jobs under controlled circumstances...the problems for them, and where humans really shine, are in "upset mode" when something is irregular or when abstract or artistry are required. Prime example...if you want the Mona Lisa painted on a water tower, you can program a robot to do it easily enough. But you'll never get an inspired original a la Bansky out of a machine as it is currently beyond it's programming.

Since painting is an art and science there can not be robot or human. In the current world there can only be mixture of the two depending on the job itself.
