Depending on where you are from this was taken at Sideshow alley or fairground attraction at a night session at the Hobart Regatta.

Thsi was ahand held time exposure, I used a DS so there was no anit shake. I tried to find something to lean on to maintian reasonable steadiness.

1.5 seconds at iso 200 with a Tamron SP 28-80mm (28 mm) @ f3.5 - wide open

That is a veryinteresting picture and it really fits your description of "painting with light."

A great capture..

But I would term the photograph time lapse or extended exposure.

Painting by light is exactly that , the shutter is opened using Bulb setting and either a torch (Flashlight) is used to slowly sweep the area with light to paint the scene or a second person can walk about the scene holding a flash in their hand manually firing the flash by hitting the TEST button and again painting the scene with the flash.

I used all these methods, Bulb, Torch and Flash to phototgraph many night scenes, some without any ambient lighting (street lights, moon etc)

But, Again, a good shot.
