This print started as a larger landscape with a figure of a woman in the foreground. I was interested in seeing how the textures of the two elements affected each other. After an endless struggle to work with this combination I ended up just scraping away the woman completely and instead inserting a group of trees. A much better idea which led to more landscapes with trees as a major element in the composition.
