Heat Wave

Colour Vision

Daylight differentially reflected as colours by 
metals and chemically dyed oxide particles. 
These "pigments" are suspended in 
a mixture of linseed oil with
 turpentine and damar varnish 
( both derived from coniferous trees ) 
The relationship between viscosity and gravity 
becomes evident as
 the "oil colour" is absorbed into the 
translucent surface of white pine board. 
The background is  
"stained" western red cedar.
