Because of the conservation of energy: We can get wet by only expending a minimal amount of potential energy by letting gravity drop us into the sea, but to get dry again requires a great expenditure of energy to hoist us out; to sponge us off, and to evaporate the residual wetness.

Pigments. The pigmentation in the paints make it mix differently than lights.
