‘The March’ depicts the necessary, but perilous event of migration during a snow storm. Changes in temperature, food shortages or the need to mate, among other factors, make migration an important event. However, it is usually long, arduous and full of difficulties – particularly for juvenile or older penguins, who may not survive the journey. My aim was to draw the viewer’s attention to both the individual penguins’ behaviour, as well as the dynamic of the group as a whole. This piece was a finalist and deemed ‘highly commended’ in the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year competition.
