Hawaii Art Newsletter - January 2013





Aloha ,



Here we go into the new year. I hope 2012 was great for you and 2013 even greater. The art tip this month is on perspective and foreshortening. Learn this well and you can create really impressive art.

As the year begins my crew is working to launch an unusually progressive show auction of original art called KAI. This show will take place on Kauai but bidders world wide will be able to participate online.

I'll be adding variations to my personalized art classes. Please take note of coming price changes in March. Details below. There are some fun photos for you to enjoy.

So, I wish you enjoyable reading and as the ART FROG would say... Hoppy New Year!

With Aloha,
Patrick Ching

ART TIPS
(Back to the top)
- Great art tips
ART TIP - Getting Perspective - There are a certain few artists that really "get" perspective. You can tell who they are-their paintings sell. Most of us have been exposed to one point or two point perspective -where objects get proportionately smaller as they vanish toward points on the horizon. The younger kids may not have been taught this because art education has been largely reduced in schools.

Foreshortening is a form of perspective. I learned it from looking at comics. Captain Marvel is a master of foreshortening. Imagine someone pointing a finger or even their nose into a camera. The rest of him gets small pretty quick.

Pay close attention to what lines even slightly overlap others. This tells you what is in front of what.

My advice to you is get to know perspective and foreshortening well. Practice drawing things pointing right at you. Be honest at what you see; not what you think it should look like. When painting nature even a slight change in direction of a line makes a significant impact on the viewer. This is especially evident in the ocean. Most of your ocean strokes should be more level (horizontal) than you think.

Pay extra attention to perspective today. Look at the branches or coconut fronds pointing right at you. Point your arm at a mirror. Study the scene. Try drawing what you see and enjoy your new perspective.

KAI


"KAI"
An Unusually Progressive Ocean Art Show
By Patrick Ching

OPENING RECEPTION FEBRUARY 2, 6pm-8:30pm Princeville Center Kauai and on World Wide Internet

The countdown to the KAI Show has begun and I am chompin' at the bit to get to these paintings. If you are someone who'd like to own an original Patrick Ching oil painting keep a close eye on this first of its kind show. If you know someone who likes original art at great prices please send them to this link. If you just want to see these paintings in progress, check in to this website regularly. To make it more exciting we've decided to one continuous auction that begins at the Opening Reception on February 2 and ends at the Final Reception on March 23 at 8:30pm. Check in at PatrickChingArt.com to get information on the paintings and bidding instructions.



These large 36"x48" paintings will be realistically painted yet appear powerfully abstract, focusing on sections of the sea.

The opening reception of Kai will be on February 2 from 6pm to 8:30pm.
On this night the public will be able to view the first layer of paint on all of the ten paintings that Ching will complete during the show. This will give viewers an idea of what the final paintings will be like.

The bidding will begin via a silent internet auction that will be visible on an internet monitor. To get things rolling Patrick Ching will include a large gicle'e ($675 value) as a bonus for the first bidder of each painting. The bidding will end at the Final Reception on March 23 at 8:30pm.

The paintings in the Kai exhibit will be perfect for creating a mood of tranquility in common areas and lobbies of hotels, businesses or exquisite homes. The work will be of special interest to interior designers as they will available as reproductions on canvas or wallpaper in various sizes.

I hope you will enjoy watching this creation take place. February 2nd to March 23 will be a rare time to meet me in person as I will be painting on site almost daily to complete these special works of art. Reproductions of the paintings in the Kai Exhibit will be available at Patrick Ching Art in the Princeville Center or www.PatrickChingArt.com

Also Premiering at KAI, the Tropical Originals of Evelin Kekesi


This will be the premier show by Hungarian born artist Evelin Kekesi. These attractively priced original paintings will enhance the tropical mood of any home or business.

NEW RELEASE - 20% OFF PRINTS & ORIGINAL - UNTIL 1/31/2013
Orca in Paradise


Inspiration: It is not commonly known that orcas, also known as "killer whales" occur in Hawaiian waters. Actually orcas are the most dispersed mammals on Earth next to humans. Transient family pods of orca do visit Hawaii and have been photographed and recorded here on video by a privileged few. This scene is of a pod of orcas cruising through calm seas off the beautiful Na Pali Coast of Kaua'i. Though they are yet to be spotted along this coast, artist Patrick Ching is sure the scene will come true as do several of his future intention paintings such as "Hanalei Revisited" and "Manana Girl".

East Cove Boobies


Inspiration: This scene is from the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge lighthouse area looking east to the red footed booby colony on Crater Hill and beyond to the Mokolea Peninsula on the Island of Kauai. In the foreground red footed boobies are collecting chenopodium shrubs to use in nest building. Click here to view big image, get details, purchase online

NEW RELEASE - 20% OFF PRINTS & ORIGINAL - UNTIL 1/31/2013
West Side White Tails


Inspiration: This scene is from the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge lighthouse area looking west towards the cliffs of Kauapea and Anini beach. Soaring on the west side are white tailed tropicbirds. A seabird that often soars in the mountains and nest in the cliffs. Their long White tail feathers were used in ancient times by Hawaiians to decorate Kahilis or feathered standards to signal the arrival of royalty.

ART - Kathleen Kelly - Date - 12/9/2012

While on Kaua'i last week, my husband purchased for me, the print of the painting of the seal in the clear water playing with a green ball. I am a former art instructor, and I used to own an art supply store as well, so I too am talented, but I respect your talent immensely! Had I known sooner, I would have taken a workshop with you! NEXT TIME! Also, please note the lovely lady who was working at your gallery when we were there was so kind. We ended up buying her version of the green church (where she told us she got married). Nice friendly staff!
