IELTS Speaking Model: Drawing & Painting - Part 1

IELTS(International English Language Testing System) is the world's leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. Below are some sample questions and model answers for the topic ‘Painting & Drawing'

Do you like drawing (or painting)?
I'm a huge fan of drawing. Ever since I was I child I have been taking drawing classes and in fact I consider myself quite the artist. However I'm not so keen on painting. The brush is just a little too hard for me to control and I think that it's very messy.

What kind of pictures do you like to draw?
Well when I was a child I was quite fond of drawing people. I used to ask others to model for me while I drew a portrait of them. Whereas these days I prefer drawing cartoon characters. In fact I have even illustrated my own superman comic book.

Do you think drawing (or painting) is difficult?
As I mentioned before I have been taking drawing classes as a child and even my teacher says I'm quite talented so I guess not really. To me drawing is like a second nature. When I think of something creative in my mind I just have to draw it instantly. That is why I carry a scrap book around with me all the time.

Do you think it’s important for children to learn to draw?
Although I'm a drawer I actually don't think it's essential for children to draw. Most people say that drawing is a skill that is not too useful for one's life and I personally agree. Even if I didn't know how to draw I'm sure I could still live a really happy life.

What’s the difference between an adult and a child learning to draw?
In my opinion a child is like a blank piece of paper. They haven't experienced life for as long as an adult so they are able to draw things with more creativity cuz they can let their minds go wild. Vice versa an adult learning to draw would be influenced by things they know about so the drawing they make would not be as creative.

To draw (or paint) well, what factors do you think are important?
Well, obviously the creativity of the artist would have to be the most important factor that needs to be taken under consideration. Also the colors used could also be an essential feature of the drawing - some people are fond of hot colors while others are keen on dark ones.
