Illustration vs. Painting

Decades ago this would often come up in discussion with Maestro: what is the difference between “Illustration” and “Painting”?

Here’s a thought I had tonight on the way home from Tuesday’s figure drawing lesson:

Illustration is execution; Painting is performance.

Illustration is the end of the journey; Painting is the means of the journey.

Your thoughts?
