This was one of the photos I took a couple months back in a flooded cemetery. (Take a look at the original post.) Since I've been thinking about working with more reduction lino prints after the first one, but with a simpler image, I pulled them out again as an option. I thought that because the shapes are fairly straightforward and there was no need for colour I could use this as a image to practise my technique with.
I started by separating the image into different colour layers in Photoshop, which gave me a good idea of what I'd have to carve. I'm getting better at thinking in terms of negative space, but it's still very foreign. This is a good image for me to learn because I'm only going to need three layers. I also flipped it , so that it comes out correctly once it's printed:
