When we last left our hero, she had embarked on a new reduction linocut. Her mission? Pick only five colors and stick with them.
As you may recall, the effort began like this:
The second color was also a blue, but Use-Only-Five-Colors Woman neglected to take a photo. In the end this second color turned out so much like the first that it almost doesn't count. Too late to turn back now, though.
Third color... light ochre.
Fourth color... a darker ochre.
As frequently happens at this point, consternation ensued. The first ochre looked green, not yellow, and the value seemed too dark. The two blues were almost indistinguishable. But Only-Use-Five-Colors Woman would not be defeated by mere ink on paper. She carved some more and then printed the fifth color.
Take THAT, wicked value changes! Ka-POW evil color temperature! Don't even THINK about messing with Use-Only-Five-Colors Woman!
Use-Only-Five-Colors Woman strikes a triumphant pose, her super apron waves gently in the breeze.
But wait! Who's this? Oh no! It's the nefarious Just-One-MORE-Color Woman! She's engaged Use-Only-Five-Colors Woman in some sort of devious wrestling match. Will our hero have to hang up her super-apron? Tune in next week for the exciting conclusion.
