Twelve days of Christmas Series
Twelve days thumbnail Ten lords leaping - I knew fairly early on what the subject for the ten lords was going to be but I wasn't sure how I was going to compose this print. I tried all manner of 'poses' but felt that the penguins offered the most visual interest and created some lovely shapes when they were diving into, rather than jumping out of, the water. The image shown here is the second verison of this linocut. The background got far too complex in the first version and I had no choice but to start again. There were several pluses to starting again, apart from being able to resolve the background - I 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.
