Looking Down From The Plank
Emma · Age 14 · Laois
My piece depicts the feeling of listening to people talk about people or things with the wrong outlook, while being too shy to speak up. It is like the feeling of people shouting at you to walk the plank when you don’t want to, but are too scared to speak up. Or even be part of the people shouting for the person to walk the plank, knowing it’s wrong you shout along but can’t get the courage to speak up. The ear is most detailed to depict the strongest feature and the mouth is a simple line.
