Model Answer:

Well, my favourite hobby is painting. This activity brings me immense joy and relaxation. I also like to believe that it is a creative activity that allows me to express myself and delve into the world of colours and imagination.

What hobby it is: 
Painting is a hobby that I have been passionately pursuing for the past six years. It involves using various mediums like watercolours, acrylics, and oils to create artwork on canvas or paper. I enjoy exploring different techniques, experimenting with colours, and bringing my ideas to life through brushstrokes.

What is something interesting about it:
One of the fascinating aspects of painting is its versatility. There are numerous styles and genres to explore, ranging from landscapes and portraits to abstract and contemporary art. Each style offers its own unique challenges and rewards, making the journey of painting an ever-evolving and exciting one. Additionally, painting allows me to immerse myself in the process, forget about the world around me, and focus entirely on the canvas before me.

And explain why this is your favourite hobby:
Painting holds a special place in my heart because it provides an avenue for self-expression and introspection. Through painting, I can convey my emotions, thoughts, and experiences without the need for words. It allows me to tap into my creativity and explore my imagination freely. The feeling of holding a paintbrush and watching the colours blend and take shape on the canvas is immensely satisfying.

Furthermore, painting acts as a form of therapy for me. It helps me relax and unwind, serving as a stress reliever from the demands of everyday life. When I immerse myself in the world of colours and strokes, all my worries and anxieties fade away, and I find solace in the process. It brings me a sense of peace and tranquillity that I find difficult to replicate through any other activity.
