Color in the Wash 
by Bruce McMillan

Water drips,
surface wash,
color spreads,
ocean greens,
subtle tones,
water color
painting, see?

Gathering at the boatyard at Spruce Head, Maine

A demonstration of a color wash for the sky and sea.

The scene for the art.

"It all comes out in the wash," said David Dewey,  
"so to speak." . . . two . . . three . . . four.

"A landscape is a sandwich of color  
with a heavy dose of sky." –David Dewey

The finished art at Spruce Head, Maine,  
ready with the power of its wash.

The Ashlee Marie lobsterboat of Spruce Head,  
ready for a hull power wash.
