IELTS Speaking Part 1 Topic: Painting
Do you like drawing or painting?
Both of them, but I enjoy drawing more. When I paint, I often make a mess and just cannot blend the colors properly. I find drawing to be easier and something that you can do on the go, such as on the underground or doodling (drawing without proper form) on your notes during class.
What kinds of things do you like to draw?
Definitely portraits. I’ve always been inclined to draw the human face, capturing their intricate (detailed) features and expressions. When I travel, I take photographs of local people then later replicate them to keep those memories alive.
Did you enjoy doing art lessons when you were a child?
Of course! It was one of my favorite classes. Since I was never a math or science person, art was always a creative outlet (way of expression) for me. I felt like I needed it after all the stress of logical thinking throughout to do, not to mention my art teacher was really cool and zany (unique; quirky).
Do you ever draw or paint pictures now?
Absolutely! Not as often as I used to because of time and adult responsibilities, but I still manage to draw a few times per week, especially to unwind (relax) before bed. Furthermore, I intend to go on a 2 or 3 week holiday abroad each year so I sketch (draw) people there.
