Yes, you can say that, or 'I just like to paint in my spare time'. – Kate Bunting

This is more modest than saying I'm not a professional. Saying, I'm not a professional provides petty individuals an opportunity to tell others that you believe your painting is good enough to be mistaken as having been made by a professional painter. Consider your audience when saying, I am not a pro. -- EllieK
