Pictor vult pingere is wrong????? Why????

What is the difference here between "vult" and "velit"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Moopish

With how Duo uses them: vult = "(he/she/it) wants", velit = "(he/she/it) would like".

The difference is the mood. vult is indicative and velit is subjunctive.

That was my thought; thanks for confirming! I think Duo is using the subjunctive correctly.
