So this is my newly finished reduction linocut. My first reduction with fewer than 10 colors since my first ever 2 years ago.
The truck itself was discovered while on a vacation just over a year ago on the eastern edge of Zion National Park in Utah (right outside the park entrance on UT-9). There is a Trading Post and a campground at that entrance/exit to the park and when we pulled over to look around I found this old Dodge truck sitting there in complete disrepair. I took a photo of it and it's still one of my favorite pictures from that vacation.
I had wanted to turn it into a reduction lino, but there were so many colors in the actual scene that when I counted them up I was looking at about 18 layers. I didn't want to do that many so I turned it into a monochromatic image and used Photoshop to break it down a bit into various numbers of colors. I settled on 3 and it's taken way too long to get it completed, but hey....a guys gotta work.
