Model Answer 1:

Introduction:
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to talk about an object that I find particularly beautiful. I would like to describe a painting that I have at home and that I am very fond of. In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful paintings that I have ever seen.

Where the artwork/ object is:
The painting now adorns our house. I bought it at an art exhibition approximately three years ago. It is a landscape and it was created by a local artist. I think this painting is a true work of art, and I feel lucky to have it in my home. I tried to contact the artist and get some more paintings from her but could never trace her!

How it was made:
The painting was created using oil paints on a canvas, I guess. I was amazed by the level of detail in the painting, especially the way the artist captured the light and the shadows on the mountains. I was also impressed by the skill of the artist in creating a sense of depth and distance in the painting. It was a stroke of genius.

What it shows/looks like:
The painting depicts a beautiful mountain range with a river flowing through it. The colours used in the painting are very vibrant and they give a sense of tranquillity and calmness. The mountains are painted in shades of green and brown, and the sky is a beautiful blend of blue and white. The river is painted in shades of blue, and it looks like it's flowing right out of the painting.

And explain why you find it particularly beautiful:
What I find particularly beautiful about this painting is the way it captures the essence of nature. It's almost as if the painting brings a piece of the natural world into our house. I feel a sense of peace and calm when I look at the painting, and it reminds me of the beauty of the world around us. I also find it interesting that someone created that piece of nature perhaps totally from her imagination.



Sample Answer 2:

Introduction:
Before I say anything about this topic, I'd like to thank you for the time and opportunity to let me talk about something that I believe is quite beautiful. Well, as someone who appreciates art and design, I have always been drawn to beautiful furniture. One particular piece that I find especially beautiful is a handcrafted wooden dining table that we have at home.

Where the artwork/object is:
The table is located in our dining room, where it serves as the centrepiece of the space. It's a large, sturdy piece of furniture that can seat up to ten people comfortably.

How it was made:
The table was made by a local carpenter, who used high-quality, solid wood to craft the tabletop and legs. The carpenter took great care to ensure that the table was not only beautiful but also functional and durable.

What it shows/looks like:
The table has a classic, rustic look to it, with a smooth wooden surface and thick, sturdy legs. It has a rich, warm colour that adds a cosy and inviting feel to the dining room. The wood grain is visible, giving it a natural and authentic look.

Why you find it particularly beautiful:
I find the wooden table particularly beautiful for several reasons. Firstly, the craftsmanship that went into making it is evident in the fine details and quality of the wood. Secondly, the table's classic, rustic design has a timeless beauty that never goes out of style. Finally, the fact that it's a handcrafted piece of furniture gives it a unique character and history that I find fascinating. Whenever I sit down at the table, I feel a sense of warmth and comfort that is hard to describe.
