    Could you please form a complete sentence?
    In the first option you'd need an article "Painting a building" like in "The painters are painting a building"

    The second option is ok as a noun phrase

    Correct, but you can also make "building" plural , then it'll be OK.

    Painting buildings, especially the tall ones, is a highly risky job.

    Well, now that you were literally following the example, have you managed to catch that?
