|Reduction linocut in progress, Step 1|
This time I thought it would be fun to push the color a bit, a decision which might end up looking great and might end up looking like a disaster zone. But, hey. I run the risk of a very public crash and burn every time I start documenting a new piece... so why not? I started out with a transparent green.

Yep, that's green. Could be fun, could be a nightmare. Let's move on.
Color pass #2 was a bit more predictable... a transparent blue.

The printing of this color was straight up and basic... just roll it and go. Because the blue was so transparent it created a sort of... well... a blue-green, of course.
For the third color pass I decided it was time to make things a bit more interesting by creating a blended roll. I rolled out a transparent light blue and a deeper transparent blue-violet.

Alrighty, then, that seems like a good start.

The best way to do this will be to cut a mask and do some spot inking, so that's where we're headed next.
