I was first struck by the denseness and complexity of the trees and the illusion of depth I found in the Max Klinger etching. Elements that I am especially aware of in moving through the woods are the linear movements of bare branches and the superimposed rhythms of their many layers. I represented these elements best by overlapping several translucent images in my print. This also helps in the representation of the experience of moving into the woods, instead of merely viewing a way to move through them.
