Ann confessed that the composition of this print proved to be quite the challenge. After a grueling trial-and-error process of various poses for each penguin, Ann felt the birds offered the most visual interest when they were diving rather than jumping out of water. The image shown here is the second version of this linocut. The background got far too complex in the first version and Ann had no choice but to start again. There were several pluses to starting again, apart from being able to resolve the background, Ann was able to change some of the penguins positions to improve the composition and the drawing was looser second time round, which resulted in a more fluid print.
